Footprints In The Sand

BetterPhoto.com Editor's Pick   Footprints In The Sand
Footprints In The Sand

I found these footprints (Human and Raccoon) just as you see them here along the shoreline of the creek. I saw lots of different animal footprints on this particular day (Deer, Coyote, Raccoon, various birds etc). With the hot Summer they all have been coming to creek during the night for a drink.

    VERY COOL FIND & CATCH
I enjoy finding tracks in the woods on the beach along the creek its all like detective work. It's very interesting to see whats around without actually seeing them.

You came across a real gem here Jeff. This is so interesting with the human foot print and the print of the racoon. I love hoy you were able to bring the prints out so vividly. The texture of the sand adds to the look. I hope we see it again my friend.

Definitely very cool Jeff. But why do they look raised instead of impressed in the sand? Or is that an illusion?

Interesting! The way the light is hitting them they look convex instead of concave.. What Michelle said. Love it, anyway!! A FAVE!

At first sight I thought you discovered the missing link tracks of the infamous BIRDMAN...But now I see you have discovered RACCOONMAN. WOW! :D

Okay, okay...so what if I read the rest of it?...It was fun to dream. :)))

Do you know Mary Robison? SHE just discovered BIG FOOT! YES!!! It's TRUE! It's in her gallery as we speak!!!

Really cool image, Jeff, and I hope the judges love it as much as we do!

This really is a once-in-a-lifetime photo, Jeff! But you no doubt have inspired many others now to "follow in your footsteps" (OUCH!) and seek tracks of their own to photograph.
This is also one of those "simply beautiful" images that the judges love. So I'll look forward to seeing it again next month.

Those cute little raccoon paw prints look like our kangaroo paws! It's a great capture, and would look stunning in b+w too, I reckon!

Cool find with great comp. I have taken many footprints in the sand and none have quite made it. Love how the prints are raised - 3-D.
