A single crab, innumerable grains of ilmenite and zircon and a setting sun create bas-relief art on a beach.
Hi Ian, nice image..
Thanks very much, Ntinos. I love the diversity of patterns one finds on a beach. Warm greetings from Australia.
Is truly art!!! Very nice...! Only yours eyes, the artist, can see that...., Ian! My greetings, Simona
He is far too modest Mira, and the grains of ilmenite and zircon + the crab play only a small part of this art work.
Greetings to NSW, Amelia
To Amelia, Mira and Simona:
I am not sure that modest is the best word - more a case of being appreciative of the crab, and a love of walking on beaches to see what I can see - just the same love that you have for beaches, methinks. And quite aware of the remarkable work of others and conscious that there is so much to learn. But in the meantime I will go on looking and experimenting. I have several images in the "Ready for Pano" file (or beaches and water surface art) about which I have already had silent conversations with you, and in due course I look forward to their becoming virtual conversations. Appreciatively, Ian.
Thankyou Mira, but the activity of the crab is quite amazing, and every one of the myriad of holes on the beach have a completely unique distribution of prills around them! And I am sure that the swash, backwash and receding tide has been very creative too. What I see here, is what you see when you look at the bark on a plane tree! Warmest greetings, Ian
Simona, I suspect that what we see with our eyes is only a reflection of our imagination. If we are appreciative we see a remarkable world around us. Best wishes, Ian
Wonderful! I see these crabs them again! I was on a beach south of Cairns and I have suddenly sprung up under the feet Ian.Truly a piece of nature's art.
Great to share with you Tom - our mutual appreciation of our beaches, and our mutual appreciation of nature's art.
Warmest greetings from Queensland.
I clicked this because the thumbnail looked promising and I wasn't disappointed when I zoomed & saw a piece of abstract art. Beautiful subtle colour, and fabulous texture. (I still can't see the crab!) "Hi!" from Canada. Theolfa
You delight me. I am really pleased that you have enjoyed this and appreciate abstract images. The crab is down the wee hole that is covered with prills at the centre of the design!
I received another Hi from Canada tonight: our daughter and her family are in Baker Creek (BC?) at the moment! and enjoying their photography.
Baker Creek is in Alberta, Ian, near Lake Louise & the Rockies. It's absolutely beautiful, check my Alberta list. Theolfa
I thought it might have been but it wasn't in my mental geography. I have now seen the images from their photography courtesy of their uploads to Flickr,and they have been incredibly fortunate especially with their wildlife photography.
Your comment is appreciated, Domi. The beach becomes a place of much activity between the tides, if one is careful to observe.
