As Winter is beginning to reliquish its grip on New England, a look back at a beach visit from last year.
In 2015, the end of January was particularly cold and snow-filled, which made the last day of the month a perfect time to go visit the beach. There were many wonderful snow images, but this one stood a bit apart for me.
While wandering around the beach, I noticed that there were some areas where the receding water had left some rather interesting formations in the sand. Striations in the sand combined with the semi-solid salt water from the cold, created this wonderful view from a low angle (I laid down to get this angle). To my eye, this felt like looking over a sand dune toward the edge of a desert oasis, an interesting juxtaposition to the extreme cold of the day!
Hope you enjoy it as well!
