Abstract close up in the sand. Isn’t it amazing what happens as the swirling tide rushes back out to sea. I loved the patterns that were formed in the beach sand. So unusual to see the black sand washed up.

Taken the afternoon Tropical Cyclone Bianca battered the coast, 30 January, 2011. Cottesloe Beach.

I live in Perth, Western Australia & think the best way I can describe myself is to say I am an expression of colour. Love to shot you what I see through the lens. Thankyou bubblers for popping by to see my works & encourage me.

    Congratulations, shazart! You’ve been featured in the Abstract Lines group February 28, 2011!

    This capture is strong on its own, but the underlying fact that this particular pattern will never be seen again in nature by you, I, and anyone else thousands and millions of years from now is deeply intriguing. I don’t remember who stated it, but I believe it is said that if you take a cup of water and pour it into the ocean, it would take as long or longer than the age of the universe itself to get that configuration of water again. I’m sure that holds true for the sand constantly being brought to and pulled from the shore too. You have an extraordinary image here, on more than one level.

  • Richard I am so very touched by your amazing words. THANKYOU SO MUCH & delighted to have this image featured. It wasn’t even the favourite in this series, but when I read what you say I learn more about it & just how extraordinary it is! And yes isn’t it amazing to think that same pattern will NEVER appear again, it was a moment frozen in time. Will keep in touch & hope you have time to see alll these abstracts in this series. In pain today & this really lifts my spirits!
