Fleeting


A few years ago I caught a fleeting glimpse of a basking shark in Salcombe estuary - a magical moment.
As an afterthought - it was a fleeting glimpse of the world for the plankton too!

Really beautiful with the careful details and ornaments set to cheer up the whole piece.
I love the "fleeting" curvy lines here too. making the shark so alive:)
