Sand ripple patterns on the beach: Ripple patterns on Rhossili beach, Gower, West Glamorgan, New Year's Day 2010 (1) 

New Year’s Day 2010 was a fabulous day to be in Gower. Not only did the sun shine brightly from a clear blue sky on the frostiest and chilliest of days but the sea itself had decorated the seashore with wonderful, sharply-ridged ripple patterns of hard wet sand. This ornamentation was spread over extensive areas at  the Llangennith end of the beach, close to the island of Burry Holms, forming not seascapes or landscapes but unique ripplescapes.
