Nature Photos


These are all from tidepools and beaches along the California coast. Seaweeds are marine algae; for images of terrestrial algae go to Algae and Cyanobacteria. For photos of tidepool animals, tidepool communities and other marine life go to Tidepool Animals and Marine Life. On the page below, images of seaweeds and other marine algae are first, followed by kelp and seaweed photos and a seaweed tidepool community at the bottom. Thanks to Kathleen Dickey for the seaweed identifications.
