The best with these ripples is, that they survive in winter...
But I will never understand, how they are formed by the waves - just look at #4!
#1

#2

#3 the birth of ripples

#4 a miracle to me

#5

#6

#7

#8 ripples after the rain


if you have absoloutely nothing else to do, look here for more ripples:

These are great shots of an amazing phenomenon. Who would think that sand and water could provide such an astounding array of patterns and light effects?

Hi ladyhawk,
I hoped to find corresponding structures in the sky some day.
But I guess sand and water have more options concerning patterns.
I have never seen a #4 in the sky.

The vertical-horizonal aspect of #4 makes it look like terrace farming on a hill. #8 looks amazing to me also. Nice subject matter and shots, you will never find two the same. - Don

...and there are new ones every 12 hours!

....like terrace farming on a hill....
I can see those little crabs riding on seahorses, doing some farming!

Nice addition Don, thanks!

Sven, It doesn't seem possible for the water to create such interesting designs in the sand...but there they are! Great shots. Jim

Hi Jim,
I know this world since my childhood, it is a fantastic place. Only spectacular on a second sight and very relaxing!
It is a pity, that there are no pelicans down there. But I once found a displaced flamingo at that beach.

....and Jim, think of the designers of the norwegian coast :-), this is a simple job compared to that!

Great shots, Sven. Makes me melancholic. I remember going "Wattwandern" as a kid in Dorum by Cuxhaven.
