Playing in the sand!

Now this is what I call making sand-castles!

Apologies to the person that sent me the link to: PHOTOS OF WORLD-CLASS SAND SCULPTORS AT WORK!  Their name has slipped my mind.

The event was the 2014 US Sand Sculpting Challenge and 3D Art Exposition held recently in San Diego, California.

In any case, I wasn’t going to reblog the whole article because it’s much, much better if you go and read about the talented artists directly. Artists who produced this:

sand1

and this:

sand2

not overlooking this:

sand4

or this:

sand3

No, you absolutely have to drop into this place and read about these most talented artists.

Now how far is it to the nearest beach? …..

Must start practising …. wonder how long it would take me to build this:

  1. Reblogged this on Smorgasbord – Variety is the spice of life and commented:
    I have stood mesmerised for hours watching a sand artist at work – all was unclear until he stood back from his work and there was a giant turtle with all her babies trailing behind her. What is extraordinary is that most of these wondeful works of art will be lost very quickly either as the tide reaches high on the beach or because the sand dries out and crumbles…..thankfully again someone captured them for all of us to enjoy and to keep forever.
