Artist's Description

Lines in the sand received a highly commended award in the the black and white category of the 2007 ANZANG Nature and Landscape Photographer of the year competition (ANZANG: Australia, New Zealand, Antarctica, New Guinea bio-region). It also won a first place in a local competition run by Harvey Norman.

It was taken in the immense dune field between Lake Wau Wauka and Iron Prince Reef in the Howe Wilderness Zone, Croajingolong National Park. It is just near Cape Howe on the Victorian, New South Wales border where the coast line takes a dramatic turn north resulting in the sand building up on this rock flanked headland.

On this particular day I had arisen an hour before dawn and witnessed the white dunes absorb all the pre-dawn colours before a spectacular ocean sunrise had me chewing through my film in awe. I wandered around the huge dune field taking advantage of the morning light that emphasized the ripples in the sand. After some inclement weather this part of the dune field had dried out unevenly resulting in sand bands of differing moisture content being blown in alternate directions. The result was this remarkable, and logic defying pattern.

This particular shot was literally the next frame in the camera after my 2006 ANZANG black and white runner up shot, Dunes near Wau Wauka

Camera: Canon EOS30
