Sand Castle at Sunset

Uploaded: August 07, 2002


This was part of a Guinness record sandcastle built by Gerry Kirk and his world famous team. According to Time-Life, Gerry is the world's leading sand sculpture artist. This particular image shows the peak of the castle, which stood 64 feet high. The entire structure was 400 feet long, and was titled "The Lost City of Atlantis". It was built in Mission Bay, San Diego, California. I shot this with my Fuji 6x7 camera.

WoW it's amazing! And the color and shadows of your photo really make it come to life. It look like a "real" photo of the lost city! Very striking image indeed. #7272

Thanks for your comments. Eventually I will put a "Sand Sculpture" section on my website, which will include other photos of "The Lost City of Atlantis". Gerry Kirk's concept behind this image is that Atlantis was actually captured by Aliens. The top part of the sculpture (seen in this image) represents a space ship.
