Weekly Photo Challenge: Movement

Definition of Movement: (1) “the act or process of moving; especially: change of place or position or posture (2): a particular instance or manner of moving.”
~Merriam-Webster Dictionary 

What I’m showing you today is the RESULT of movement.  The action (movement) has already occurred. 
What you see below is the RESULT of movement of water and sand.
When Lake Superior’s wave action recedes from the beach, pulling and drawing sand with the water,
it leaves behind sand “sculptures”, where water rushed around rocks.

a beach on Michigan’s U.P.’s Keweenaw Peninsula.

The result of movement of the sand and water is like Nature’s Artwork on the beach.  

The miniature sculptures are fun to find,

and they remind us of the strength and power of water.

Nature’s Artwork….

  2. What a beautiful group of photos, Judy! Lake Superior is near and dear to my heart, and I’ve been there many times, but not on the Michigan side. Great post. Thanks for sharing.

    • You’re welcome, Jenna! And thank you for your kindness. Lake Superior fascinates me. It’s about 12 hours from my home to the Keweenaw. Amazing to still be in my own state! It takes us less than that to get to our kids in Omaha, NE!! Lake Superior is so vast, cold, but incredibly beautiful. It really is a “Inland Sea”, isn’t it? So many lovely places to visit along its shores.

  3. Nature’s Art is beautiful and constantly evolving, giving a unique, surprising form and color everytime. I enjoyed the many sand sculptures, making me appreciate more the power and magic of the sand and the sea. I discovered a priceless Nature Art piece today, thanks to you my friend.

    • Thank you for seeing my post, IT! Thank you for your delightful words! I am fascinated by what I call these “sculptures” by nature. Some people may walk over them, but I think they are cool! 😉

I'd love to hear from you~
