No conocia este tipo de concha, Paco, y he buscado alguna información en internet. En una de las páginas la ofertaban a partir de 250 €... tienes una pequeña fortuna. La imagen es preciosa con esas discretas sombras que le dan relieve.

@El pare: Caramba! A mí me costó 4 o 5 euros hace unos días!

QB from Victoria, Canada

Once again, I learn how I can't say what I need to say in English. I have to use all those words we've stolen from the French. Magnificent, superb -- splendid. Your choice to use the black background brings out the unusual shape so well. And the angle you chose is perfect: the shell looks like a fish, swimming through the darkness of very deep ocean.
