Angel of the Morning



Some of my best photos were taken right at sunset, when the sun would be low on the ocean and the tiny little sandballs would cast long shadows.    

Frequently I was working in and around a day's worth of human, canine and bicycle tracks.    Which raises a delicate issue:    should I "restore" a sandpainting by removing said tracks (via photoshop)? -- or should I simply smile as nature shows us yet another way of "renewing the canvas"?   


Viewed on another scale, footprints and bicycle treads become an artform themselves.
