Friday Field Foto #69: Patterns in a Tierra del Fuego beach

October 24, 2008

This week’s Friday Field Foto doesn’t show off any geologic relationship … I just think it looks cool.

While looking at some Miocene beach cliff exposures on the Atlantic coast of Tierra del Fuego last March I was distracted by the patterns in the sand created as the tide went out.

    Very cool sand pattern! I often attempt to capture the nifty shapes I see in the receeding tides, but rarely succeed…
