Shifting sands

We had a lovely time at the beach today, as you can see the weather was perfect. Other than a few dog walkers (you can just see 2 of them on the left) we had the place to ourselves!

This is on the west coast of the Isle of Man, we walked for a couple of miles north of this point to see the shipwreck of a fishing boat at Jurby Head. I'd never seen it before as it's only visible at very low tide. The ship ran aground during a really bad storm in December 1931, but thanks to the bravery of the ship's cook who swam ashore with a rope to reach the rescuers, the crew were all saved.

I love the different shapes and patterns that the sand makes, it never looks the same for long with the wind and water moving everything around.

Could have done with a few fluffy white clouds to add a bit of interest to the sky but I'm not complaining!
Nice composition. The inclusion of the rivulets on the sand give a real feel of movement. You certainly have had the best of the weather in the west of the country - here in Kent it feels more like winter!

Lovely shot, I just love a deserted beach. Just the two people and the dog off in the distance really emphasises the vastness of it. Interesting story too.
