I hope I'm not stretching the concept of "artistic photo" too far, but I've always been intrigued by the patterns waves make in sand as the tide goes in and out and how they look like like works of art. This page is made of seven sand photos plus one for the title where you can also see the sky, sand and water. I then took an ocean photo, duplicated it 12 times to get blue on the entire page and used it for the blue background strip!
"Indeed, every beach is essentially a product of its regional and local environment and is accordingly one-of-a-kind. The sand on each beach is like a fingerprint, unique to the particular beach where you find it. The sand's unique composition, color and grain size are a result of the source rocks it came from, but also a result of coastal processes that modify the sand over long periods of time. Examples of these processes include the types of waves and currents in an area, as well as the sea level history for that particular coast."
