Beach pebbles covered with sand

I liked the way that sand was draped over pebbles on the beach at Rhossili. Some of the sand had dark streaks, making patterns over its surface. The sand was also softly pock-marked by rain giving an interesting texture. These photographs were taken where a small stream flowed over the shore. The water trickled under the stones and slowly washed away the overlying sand from beneath thus leaving holes and interesting miniature cliff-like formations.

  1. Thank you, John. The blue stones are in fact a bluish grey, the colour alters with the light, and they are Carboniferous Limestone. The pink stones are Old red Devonian sandstones.

  2. I love your eye for detail and the unique perspective of your photos. If you had not explained that it was sand covering pebbles, I would have thought your first picture was of pock-marked rocks in shades of beige and blue.
