[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Wind is a very powerful force in nature. It can be strong as it is with hurricanes or cyclones, or it can be softer but persistent and still affect its surroundings.

This shot was taken early morning at Zenith Beach before the sun had a chance to dry out and soften up the sand. With its persistent blowing throughout the night the wind had carved out an etching in the sand, using the grass as a tool.

If it can do this overnight to hard packed damp sand you can only imagine what it can do over thousands of years and why much of our landscape looks the way it does.

Interesting photo. Excellent detail with nice morning light casting nice shadows. Very good composition. Nice framing and title!

Excellent POV and use of imagination!
Great details, lighting and nice composition!

Hej John!
Ciekawe spostrzezenie. Nie tylko dobrze to ujalesw postaci kadru, ale pieknie tez opisales. Duzo refleksji.

This is an interesting shot that is fun to look at. I really like the low angle of light creating the nice shadows of the grass. Thanks for sharing.

Evelynn : )

this is so very pretty...great title too, lots of interest and the good sharp focus on the sands and the shadows..very nice. TFS
Donna :o)

Thanks for your comments on my photo " The end of the Storm" :o) You have your wind..I have mine...:o)

John, this shot so reminds me of similar results in Canada!
But then - as well you may recall - the sand is snow instead...

Brrrrrr! Gimme a nice beach any day. I'm somewhat past the ole snowshoeing!
That said let's move on...

Nice photo that shows what happens when you answer:
"Who has seen the wind" with:
""Men do not understand how a thing which is torn in different directions comes into accord with itself 'harmony in contrarity'. HERACLITUS.

So long!

Must see if I can shoot an eagle!

Hi John,
Some creativity at work here. Good clarity and colours. The marks in the sand are part of nature then gone after a breeze or rain, to reappear again. TFS. Murray.

Hello John,
Interesting still life, or maybe rather a detail in nature!
Good play of light and shadows, fine textures in the sand...
Attractive colours in this well composed image!
