Sand border

Photo shows sand formations on the beach

A sandy border of roughness and smoothness.

This picture was shot during a family meet-up in Bloemendaal, The Netherlands in November 2013.
My girlfriend and me like to do early morning walks in nature. We sometimes ask our family to join to have a kind of an informal get-together. This time we drove to the beach near Bloemendaal. It was a very beautiful crisp morning with impressive cloud formations in the distance and some local showers. We had some coffee in one of the restaurants at the beach and went out for a walk. During that walk, we encountered several great arty imprints in the sand due to the interaction of the sand, rain and sea.
The photo was taken twice due to the fact that when I reviewed the first picture, there was some out-of-order element in the picture which ruined the symmetry in my view. Therefore, I went back to take the second picture and this time it was more clean. However… the element that ruined the symmetry was a sand sculpture of the left side that showed up on the right side. When I reviewed the photo I liked the first photo more, because of this out-of-order element. It looks like a surviving element that wishes to stand out.
No real preparations were made other than taking the picture twice, no fancy settings were used, nor any post image editing was done. And it turned out to be a great impulsive photo!
