Default Diagonals -- Wind 'n Sand

No, it's not a sand dune in the Mojave Desert. It's actually sand blown up against a retaining wall here at the beach...and formed into interesting diagonal rivulets. The dark horizontal line is the top of the retaining wall. The blue Pacific is 50 yards beyond.

Stunning. It creates something like an optical illusion.

Like the lines and the one red can in the center of the shot.
We don't have sand dunes like that here in the Mojave Desert. It just plain flat land here with lots of catus and wind but no lines.
