This is another shot from NC.
I was trying to capture the movement in the sky and the detail of the ripples in the sand.

Danielle - The colors and lighting are stunning! You did an excellent job capturing the sky and sand! Mission accomplished! - Mike #5226398

You tried & you got it. Very, very nice, Danielle. The sky is beautiful. The swirling clouds are a plus. The golden sunlight dancing atop the beach grass adds a major plus as does the foot print less ripples made in the sand by the wind. The clouds, grass and sand all tell us this is a windy day.
I think the shaded foreground [bottom third] contributes nicely too. I like it. #5226423

Autum Rhoades December 19, 2007

I believe you achieved what you were going for. The subtle color of the sand and the bold color of the sky really play off of each other well. #5226488
