Ripples of Balnakeil Bay

Wondering across Balnakeil Bay in North Scotland, back in March, I was struck by the ripples in the sand and began taking pictures. In some places on the beach there was a layer of sea water on top of the sand which had its own dynamic ripples, due to the strong wind, and this added an additional dimension to the continuously evolving patterns. Here are four of the images arranged in a quadriptych.
