“White Sand” Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands 1305-4-8606 [2:3]
The Caribbean sports some of the most magical sand and water in the world, and in fact these beachfronts frequently top the world’s best on the Travel Channel. I wandered down to the beach in search of a perspective that would capture both the ruggedness of the Turks seashores and also the soft powdery sand. I captured the image on a mid-spring at late morning, when light casts nearly straight down into the crystal blue, turquoise water. When I say this sand is soft, it is no exaggeration. It feels like the consistency of powdered sugar, and is nearly as white, too. Not too many minutes after this shot, I was overcome by a later morning rain squall, dropping inches of rain over the period of an hour or two. Lucky snag just before the storm - I’ll take lucky over good anytime!
