Y’got me!
I’m totally confused as to the role of the photographer whose shadow appears in the posted image. Was this image the one taken by the shadowed photographer? But that seems impossible given the perspective on the scene in the posted image. Were there two photographers?
I can guarantee-damn- tee this will wake from a nap!!!
HELP!

:) No photographers were featured or harmed in these images! There were numerous other objects like dunes, driftwood logs, plants, that cast significant shadows in the early light.

Strong beautiful image!
Engaging textures!
Another of my list of favorites of your 8mages,
Wonderfully complex yet strongly coherent composition.

Thank ya Dave. These were fun to spy out, and fun to rediscover during the cold homebound weeks afterward.

As a fan of “virtual leading lines” contributory to depth perception I think this image is a stellar example of those offered by the radii of curvature of the sand ripples!
...and the contribution of the converging shadow margins toward the upper left is terrific frosting on the cake!
