Failed test shot

My camera wasn't responding to what I was asking of it. "Taking photos in the dark; what's that about?" it said. So I took another, in an even darker spot. It didn't turn out; the colours are crazy and it's not exactly focused.

But I liked the result, so here it is.

Hermit, anemone, snails, barnacle.

It reminds me of one of the old still life paintings by the Dutch masters of the 17th century. I can't quite remember which.

Why was I taking photos in the dark? I'll show you tomorrow.
