This makes a wonderful center to your triptych. It's like a harmonious Taoist state between two other dissonant states. The visual equivalent of tuning into a radio station.
Elegant, refined and most artistic. Great sensibility. Superbly composed image, and the light sepia works very well here, subduing the light and shadow transition.
many thanks for your great comments - enjoyed reading them.
We were walking across a tidal flat at the German north sea shore. The low tide exposed these ripples. While usually the patterns look more or less similar like in this photo, the patterns in the two other photos are a bit unusual. My guess is, that they were caused by winds which changed direction quickly (maybe in sync with the tide). The low winter sun caused this nice side light emphasizing the shapes.
Lovely photo and yes, makes a great diptych…
Wonderful play of light & shadow.
I love the movement of this one, and the surprise factor in the middle -- adding further interest, mystery and even mood to the photo.
A subtle and interesting study. Very nicely done, Wolfgang!
An intriguing and mysterious series. Nice choice of monochromatic tones and exceptional handling of the light. Compliments. ~~~~~L
There seems to be a kind of "Ying & Yang" thing going on here, really good observation and framing!
Ripples of sand or some recently unearthed markings from a long buried, incredibly ancient Sumerian temple? There's something very elementary in these undulating ridges and the two, small raised circles which seem to consciously interrupt the regularity of the pattern. I'm not sure what they are but they lift this pattern from the random into something for more meaningful.
This was a good choice for the centerpiece of the three photo and gives the series a zen-like grounding for me. I like the layers created by the play of ridges, shadows, and wet spots in the sand. There's a sensuality to the curves of the treads and the stones counter that with what seems more thoughtful. I think your presentation of the three is focused and poetic.
Ripples... ...of sand. Central photo of a tryptych (see the folder for the two companions). Enjoy!
