How did you think I went?
The photo challenge from Cee: Colourful Monotones
A colourful monotone? I didn’t think I could find anything but then inspiration came to me. Enjoy some Colourful Monotones…..
The word prompt from Lens_Artists Photo Challenge: Patterns
So many patterns in this world it was hard to stop myself from just going on with too many photos.
The colourful patterns on the cliff face
The amazing patterns created by spiders
The reflection on the water make a very liquid pattern
The crazy cat pattern made by the bark of a Spotted Gum Tree.
Wonderful patterns made by Sand Crabs
The patterns on an aeroplanes tail
The patterns made by water lillies
Amazing patterns on the underside of a Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo
Fabulous patterns on the feathers of an Ibis
And of course, the wonderful patterns on our Moon
Sand. What a good subject for a photo challenge from Frank at Dutch goes the Photo.
Enjoy a selection of my things of sand
Everyone who goes to the beach will have seen the small balls laid out on the sand. I find them a wonderful expression of nature. None are the same although some are more elaborate than others. When we went for a walk along Emerald Beach on the Mid-north Coast of NSW, with all the other people who take advantage of a leash free area on the beach where the dogs can run free, I noticed that the small balls on the beach didn’t have any footprints in them. Perhaps there is a bit of respect for the creators of what I like to call Crab Art.
First of all have a close look at the sand balls. They do look rather random don’t they?
They are a seemingly bunch of sand balls scattered on the beach
But some have a shape and form
Can you see the little roads?
This one has a certain cartoon effect I feel. Can you see the face?
This is one of my favourites. Almost a butterfly?
From another angle you can see the little hole where the crabs “home” is.
You really should meet one of the Crab Artists. They are about the size of a finger tip. What fabulous blue eyes.
Do you think the crabs create art on the beach?
