Beach Patterns

Patterns on the sand and in the water fascinate me … the rhythms of the sea create beautiful fresh patterns day after day. That is the way with life … all change, nothing stuck, fixed or rigid! I might share some more tomorrow … but here are some around our beach for today. First the patterns of lichen on rock, a seagull’s tail feathers, and seaweed moving in a tidal rockpool.

Then the clouds, sky, and their reflections in the water creating patterns of stripes.

The beach itself is a crescent shape … bushland and incoming waves reflect the crescent  … other beach and lagoon views offer their own patterns of rippling trees, and natural shapes.

This post combines Beach and Pattern challenges. I need to combine them as we are running out of time with so much to do before S has his Open Studio and Sale next weekend as part of the River of Art Festival; before I take that first Yoga Nidra workshop in town; and before we leave for five weeks in the Kimberley. Sorry I am not getting to your blogs as often just now …. I will be back here as usual at the end of June.

  1. Woo – fantastic beachy patterns Christine. Best wishes to S for his Studio Sale – and your yoga workshop – and happy travels – will look forward to seeing some dramatic Kimberley scenery. 🙂

  2. My kind of beach! I wonder why there is both orange and green lichen. So many lovely images but I especially like the rippling trees. Enjoy your busy time and getting away my dear 🙂

    • that lichen is fascinating … who knows why there are different colours … although perhaps i could research it … i loved the trees too, winter light is good for reflections 🙂

  3. Thank you for these stunning patterns from the beach Christine. The lichen shots are amazing! . Good luck to S with his sale and enjoy Kimberley 🙂

  4. I love the lichen shots Christine – and the beach. Ripples and waves make perfect patterns. The bird’s tail is cute too! So many patterns provided by nature. 🙂

  5. Great selection of photos. Amazing how lichen can look like any number of things, depending on how the photo was taken. At first, the lichen photo can look like a rusty chunk of meal washed on shore.
