Wave Printing


February 3, 2018

When the tide recedes, it does so in little laps of the waves. The action leaves tiny ridges in the sand. I think the pock marks are from burst bubbles of sea foam.

    • Well, “printing” was my word, but “painting” works, too, Alastair!

      • Whoops! I must have mis-read it. Does that say something about me?

        • I think you thought/felt the same way I did when I saw these marks. You just saw a painting in your mind, and I just saw a print.

  2. Yes, that’s a brilliant description, and it’s hard to imagine how the water made this series of imprints. Fantastic. I’m feeling happy that you posted another beach image, too. 🙂 More!

    • Two more beach images, Lynn. Then it’s off to something else.

    Fascinating how the ocean can leave such subtle marks. Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

  4. Really nice find, Linda. I love to find subtle but very detailed patterns like this in nature…always reminding me of William Stafford’s poem “Grace Abounding”

    • What a beautiful poem. Stafford has nailed it. I was not familiar with “Grace Abounding.” Others reading this blog comment and wanting to know the poem may click here: http://thepeoplecouldfly.blogspot.com/2008/02/grace-abounding.html.

      • So glad to know you liked that poem, Linda. My wife gave me a collection of his poems called “Even in Quiet Places” a year or so ago which included ‘Grace Abounding’ and a number of others that I have resonated with me.

  5. This image reminded me of stitching…narrow ridges created by overcast threads and some french knots!
    We all seem to bring out own artistic media to your work. Or perhaps you just bring that out of us because of your beautifully composed
    photos and artist’s eye to nature.

    • Thank you, Clare. Another friend has suggested quilt lines. I really enjoy knowing where these photographs take people.
