Face In The Sand by Twisted

Currently unavailable for purchase

Taken just off the Middle Eye the middle Hilbre Island in The Dee Estuary on the Wirral. The Hilbre Islands Local Nature Reserve is contained within the Dee Estuary on the north west coast of England. The Dee Estuary is a Site of Special Scientific Interest, a Special Protection Area, a Ramsar Site which is a Wetland of International Importance. The islands consist of three tidal islands, Little Eye, Middle Eye and Hilbre Island.

The sunset on this febuary evening turned the landscape into something from another planet. The rocks in the sand staring back at me as I watched the sun cross the horizon.

    I want to reach down and scoop up that lovely sand and feel its texture. The water? under the rock closest to us almost looks like sparkles of light- I love the green of the moss on the the rock, the contrast of texture and color and movement here… loves it Reminds me of those special moments when outdoors that the whole world feel like one very close room- like a blanket wrapped around you. I’m so glad you captured one of those! Congratulations on this wonderful piece of art!
