Sand and shadows

Last week Fiona and I were on the beach catching up with Rina a Japanese exchange student, her foster family and Merv who went to Tatebayashi as part of the art-culture exchange earlier this year.

It was getting towards sundown - I was very taken by the shadows created by objects that had been stranded on the sand - lovely riverlets created by the receding water.

Just love it how nature creates such simple beauty.


  1. B, these are wonderful photos! Calming and beckoning as only the sea can be. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Love the shell and heartstone photos, great patterns.

  3. AA & VA - sorry for my tardy reply to your comments. AA - I think there is a little of the ocean in all of us as it does seem (on most occasions) to calm. VA - I love how the small and fragments of things can offer us such joy. I'm pleased to be able to share a little of our side of the globe. Go well. B
