This image taken on the southern side of Belle Greve Bay on Guernsey's east coast shows a field of the brown kelp, Laminaria ochroleuca, exposed by an extreme low water spring tide on the 21st March 2007. The Laminaria ochroleuca kelps have cylindrical stipes (or stems). In the middle of the image in the foreground there are some kelps with broad, belt-like stipes. These belong to the furbelows, Laminaria hyperborea. In the background is Salerie Corner and the Salerie quay.
