Sea Glass Photo of the Week
The Grand Prize Winner!
Congratulations to the 2015 "Shard-of-the-Year" grand prize winner Earl Brown with his beautiful turquoise fresnel lens shard. Fresnel lenses were designed to capture more light from a single source than a similarly sized conventional lens. This allowed a light source to be visible over a greater distance and were most commonly used in lighthouses and other light sources where visibility from a distance was paramount.
Fresnel lenses are often colored to indicate a side or direction. Red indicates a port (left) side and green or blue is used for the starboard (right) side of a ship, train, plane or building.
