Intriguing - I assume that different rocks erode to form different grades of sand particles, and the action of the waves sorts them. In much the same way as the lumps always rise to the top when I'm sifting flour.
I think I favour V2, it seems to relate to the textures of the original rocks.

Two fantastic images, love the colours and patterns, both are fabulous. I can just see them printed large on the lobby wall of a building like the 'Shard' Smile

Beautiful abstracts created by the sand and water movement: well spotted, Ann, and so well captured in exquisite detail and colours.

Found abstracts, the best sort in my opinion. And being sand, and easily disturbed, unique and irreplaceable. Very lovely.

I thought you had done a super-macro of a butterfly wing at first, Ann. They do look good on their own but would they be suitable for another triptych? Have to say if it was me, after taking these I would have looked for an interesting rock/stone/pebble and dropped it in somewhere Tongue

2 super images Ann, V2 my favourite,

And did you know Ann, that the Outer Hebrides is Home to the oldes Cathedral in the UK ? It pre-dates Canterbury Cathedral, but was built during the time that it was owned by Norway. So I guess it dosn't count Wink Canterbury Cathedral is still the oldest on British mainland, so what the hell Smile

They both work very well Ann. Colour contrast between blue/black and gold/orange is always appealing.

there is a type of sandstone that comes with similar pictures between the layers Smile Sometimes they look like ferns.
hard to decide between the two. Illike the grassy aspect of v2 but hten I would prefer it to grow upwards.
v1 is a bit like a seashell macro.
They are both gorgeous!!

Oooer ?....missed this one !!

Fascinating & quite beautiful shot !!!....lovely graphic qualities in this bit of 'natures-palette' !!!!.....1st class !
I love the wave motion and the blending colours from the different particles, some shells and the others washed down from the mountains streams. A magical place and I must go back again soon.

Sorry to have missed this one Ann, how could I?
