Here are some more of the fascinating sand ripple patterns that I noticed on Rhossili Beach one winter’s day. The amplitude of the ripples, the sharpness of the ridges, the layout and design of these wave-created patterns changed from one part of the beach to another. I would really like to understand exactly what factors influence the making of this infinitely variable, miniature and temporary, natural beach architecture.
