The Reader's Lens, 2013

Photographer: Beth Hutmacher, Port Townsend

Photo taken: July 23, Cape George Beach, Port Townsend

Photographer's description: “Walking on the beach near Port Townsend during a minus tide, I found this cloudlike nudibranch waiting for the tide’s return. My camera is a Panasonic Lumix, a red one.”

Expert says: “This photo looks like it’s from out of this world — very cool. The contrasting textures initially drew me to this photo, and the deep color of the background makes the nudibranch’s luminosity stand out. Great find!”
