Waves of sand

People seemed to like my macro flower photos the last few days (and thank you for the comments), so I will show a closer photo of the beach than I normally photograph.

I like the wavy texture and variable color of the sand at low tide on Tamarindo beach. I surmise that these patterns are made because the beach is so gently sloping, so the tide recede a long distance and slowly.

On our Viva la Voyage travel photo site this week we are showing photos of two charming towns on the shores of Lake Como, Bellagio and Varenna, Italy.

There is something very sensual about these undulating patterns!

It's like a lovely sand painting made by nature.
It reminds me of a picture I took of our track of footprints in the sand on a beach one spring.

A beautiful piece of natural art!

You have just granted my wish of spending a while lying in the sand.

Thanks so much for your lovely comments on VDP and Artsy Versailles.

It looks like that combed texture that is often used for the inside cover binding of good books.

Every time the nature amazes me so deeply with its variety, fantasy and beauty. Thank you for your photos, every shot proving its genius.
