Discussion in 'Landscape' started by Leslie Reid, Apr 21, 2021.

  1. You are invited to upload one or more of your landscape photos and, if you’d like, to accompany your image with some commentary: challenges you faced in making the image? your intent for the image? settings? post-processing decisions? why you did what you did? the place and time? or an aspect you’d like feedback on? And please feel free to ask questions of others who have posted images or to join the discussion. If you don’t feel like using words, that’s OK too—unaccompanied images (or unaccompanied words, for that matter) are also very much welcomed. As for the technicalities, the usual forum guidelines apply: files < 1 MB; image size <1000 px maximum dimension.

    Looks like I'm headed for the abstract here...I'm a push-over for landscape patterns.

  6. Leslie are these patterns the result of tire treads?

  11. Actually, they're completely natural. This is on the edge of a creek that is crossing a beach. As the tide goes out, the creek downcuts through the sand deposits, which aren't uniform because they'd been sculpted into ripples while the tide was in. I think the spacing is inherited from the original ripple spacing--individual ripples have slightly sorted grain sizes, so some parts erode slightly more easily than others. In addition, once erosion starts at one point, it saps water from nearby, which increases erosion where it's already started and reduces the likelihood of erosion over the part that's been drained; this can also tend to create a regular spacing of erosion features. And then there's the really interesting problem of why ripples are so evenly spaced to begin with...
