Hello All,

I thought of posting something different from my normal macro and other pictures.

I shot this during my visit to Goa and the designs are created by the sea waves when they come into the shore. These I believe are creted by Sand ripples and some one please correct me if I am wrong.

Somehow these designs are pleasing and specially when you watch them inthe morning.

Hope you all like it.

Hi Ganesh,
i also like sand ripples too, they create a very nice effect that is always changing. i think a portrait format of this shot would work great too. Nice light and colours here, thanks!

Bro this is an awesome composition!!!I dunno why, but I love this shot.

Hi Ganesh Ji,
Nice capture of these sand patterns. Excellent composition and details. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi Ganesh,

How beautiful this scene is with the patterned sand and the glimpse of the water. The designs are pristine - apparently no one has walked on the beach. So simple and so lovely.
