Part of a series of textures found along the beach during our hike along the beach from Zandvoort to IJmuiden
Best seen enlarged!
A shallow depression between two ridges in the beach is just low enough that it usually doesn’t get dry between tides; very fine particles get lodged here, and when wet, give the structure a metallic sheen. The fine particles also cement the coarser sand grains and shell shards together so it’s quite firm, a lot firmer than it looks like.
