where's the beach???

I don;t feel it particularly matches the challenge, I would have liked at least a title about underground river, or maybe river's roots??? or some sign of water. The picture itself has a lot of intersting textures and colors and I really like the dof. My eye keeps going to the top left corner as the lightest areas, but that is also the least interesting part of the picture.

Clever. Unfortunately the lack of contrast makes for too busy a composition.

this is by the beach how?

Pushing the beach motif a bit far here...hope the voters don't beat you up too badly for it. Nice capture, pleasing to see something a little different.

Kinda Escheresque. Hard to tell which way is up. But I really like the interesting colors & textures.
