Very nice images Walter. I wish they had an event like that at our beach.

Pretty amazing stuff, Walter, both the artists & the great job you did in capturing the scene. Thank you for posting, I always look for your posts because I know that the photography will be excellent & the subjects unusually interesting.

Wow, Walter!

I've just seen this now. Love the photoes and I'm very impressed with the sand sculptures.

Here in Australia there are also often sand sculpture / sand castle building competitions or just ones for exhibition.

I admire the patience of people who can do that.

Well captured, exposed, composed and shared!

These are great Walter. You certainly get lots of photo opportunities from your pier.

Default 4 Beached Sharks

Hey Walter, I work at University of South Carolina Beaufort and our mascot is the sand shark. We are looking at having a contest with our art students to build sand shark sculptures and think that your picture would be awesome for the flyer. May I have your permission to use your photo for the flyers which would be distributed around campus and around town? Please feel free to email me at [email protected] if you have any questions.
Thanks so much.

I agree with simple. The first one is my favorite. I like the way the sand sculpture parallels the real thing. But your DOF is great, so the two piers aren't competing for attention.

I think the second one is a pod of Orcas rather than sharks.

Amazing series! That 1st one is really powerful. For me it adds an added level of connecting the artwork with the environment. (Not that you have to do that with art) And from this angle/framing the blue colour gives a great feel to the negative space between the 2 competing peers.
