Sand Instead of Snow by onewing

Sand Instead of Snow

As it is summer here in Australia at the moment there is definitely no snow, but we do have plenty of sand where I live.

The sand is very white so it could be mistaken for snow sometimes.
Very white sand .. a real contrast to our black sand that we have on our coastal beaches .. What a great tree..

What an amazing Christmas tree

Such a lovely little tree - so traditional in all the sand !

A great idea for an Ozzie Christmas shot. I wonder if you ever get homesick for snow.

That's great fun! No snow in Yorkshire at the moment or anywhere else for that matter. It's raining a lot!

@julzmaioro Yes our sand here is very white. I have seen some photos of your black sand in New Zealand. I also remember seeing black sand when we visited the Isle of Wight in the UK once.

@maggiemae @kjarn @beryl @pcoulson @happysnaps @joansmor @chimfa @peadar @sangwann @louannwarren @kwind @ludwigsdiana @mittens @merrelyn @craftymeg @gijsje @carolmw @sdutoit Thanks. I got one or two strange looks from people as I walked along the beach carrying the Christmas tree. ha ha. and even stranger looks once I started taking photos of it.

@ethelperry Definitely not Ethel. I don't miss snow at all. I don't miss serious cold either.

@casablanca I don't miss snow, but we could do with some of your rain please.

@bkbinthecity I prefer sand over snow too Brian.

@s4sayer Yes he is known as Santa in Oz.

So pretty Babs...this simple little tree looks wonderful there in the sand.
December 23rd, 2019  
Lovely
December 23rd, 2019  
That's very nice - I haven't ever seen anything like this on our beaches. :)
December 23rd, 2019  
Sand or snow ... the most important is the festive atmosphere. Lovely tree.
December 23rd, 2019  
@robz That's because you haven't seen a loony like me walking along the beach carrying a Christmas tree ha ha. I took this photo just before the men in white coats found me.
December 23rd, 2019  
Lovely!
December 23rd, 2019  
This is a really fun juxtaposition of a your summer environment and a symbol of the season. fav
December 23rd, 2019
