The soft lines suddenly broken, the contrast between smoothness and cutting edges are very appealing, warmer tones would have helped to enhance your photo.

03/11/2009 11:10:45 AM
What a great title that complements the photo! Even had you not titled it such or we could not see titles, I still look upon this and see ocean waves cresting on this 'sandy' shore. Beneath an arch of earth churns a sea of sand, the waves undulated and flow in ridges and crests as they peak and break upon the desert soil. Love the play of light and the beautiful warm tones of red, orange and gold colors that sweeps across these ridges. Wonderfully composed and well captured. A lovely natural beauty to behold to which I am sure you will remember for a long time. Well done.
03/11/2009 11:06:57 AM
Beautiful. Lighting and image sharpness is spot on
03/11/2009 11:02:01 AM
Isn't the earth amazing? Time and the elements conspired to create this beautiful scene which stands always at the ready, waiting to be captured.
