It's been a challenge to adapt to this new environment, but I'm developing a bond with certain areas that are visually very exciting a good deal of the time. As I've written in recent posts, the ocean and ocean side are constantly changing subjects that I'm drawn to almost every day. I visited this place (Little Talbot Island SP) for the first time on Monday, December 2nd. The tide was fully out, and the expanse of beach was enormous. This photograph records afternoon sun on the still retreating water that carved these extraordinary sand ripples. Several hours later, there would be no trace of them.
