Little Beach, Falmouth, MA

      Recently while in Death Valley I was totally captivated by mother nature's ability to draw, so to speak,  'lines in the sand'. If one was lucky enough to catch a stiff wind the night before the dunes would take on an entirely different persona from the day before. The footprints would disappear and the lines in the sand would form new patterns that appeared to be maps to some unknown treasure -  the actual treasure was being lucky enough to be out at sunrise to see the pristine shapes and lines that nature had bestowed on the  dunes overnight.
 Last weekend up on Cape Cod I had the same feelings at Little Beach located in Falmouth. Albeit I was there in the middle of the day (not the usually golden light photographers usually chase) the light created the most pleasing patterns in the wet sand just beyond the jetty that separates the bay from the ocean.

Makes one start thinking about.........
