Patterns in nature: Sand ripple pattern at Whiteford Sands, Gower, South Wales, UK (1)

The natural patterns of ripples in the sand on the beach always fascinate me. Here is a selection that I photographed at Whiteford Sands in Gower recently. They had all formed on the expanding sand bank at the western end of the beach – which is also where I captured the strange serpentine ripples a few years ago.
