Photo365 – Day 47 – fossil on slate

I used to go to the East Coast for my family holidays as child, Skipsea to be precise. It was a great location for finding fossils as the coastline suffered badly from erosion each year. I remember finding lots of interesting fossils on walks with my mother.

Last year I returned and the road our caravan was on has been taken by the sea but the coastline looks similar, there’s just several yards less of it. I found this fossil on the same part of the coast, and today decided to photograph it on a slate background. The brown patch to the upper left is a crushed leaf that has been on the slate for a number of years.
