Sand Sculptures

Today the beaches were alive with artists creating images and figures which will be judged for originality and creativity. This was just one of the many forms --a beautiful day with sun, sand, surf, and happy people.

this is amazing - do they really make this just with sand and water - or is there something else to bind it? In any case, a wonderful sculpture, there's something lovely about so much effort being put into something so temporary...

She's a beauty! We have a sand castle competition here in San Diego during the summer. Here's the photo of a sand buddha I took. It is so amazing what is possible with sand!

Great sand art!! I hope the builder/artist is an adult because a child should not have this much imagination.
