Medano Creek

Medano Creek
f/11, 1/125 sec, ISO 320, focal length 30 mm
Medano Creek, at the Great Sand Dunes National Park. From what I've heard there's not always water in this creek, just in the spring. It's water from the melting snow, and I got so fascinated by the pattern the water made in the sand next to the shore.

Eivor:
Must add my congratulations to everyone else. Fantastic photo.

Like you, I find it fascinating because of the organic patterns in the foreground. Looks like leaves--maybe Ginko.

I TOTALLY agree with the editors on this one!!! I've gone to the water around VA numerous times over the last year looking for these ripples in the sand and have yet to find any worth photographing. Maybe when I'm out west this June..... :O)

Congratulation on all the well-deserved acclaim for this image, Eivor! Great image comp, colors, light, shadow and textures!! (years ago, I was at the dunes during the first week in Sept, and the water was only ankle-deep, at the most--and freezing cold; which felt really good, after walking in the very hot sand)
