I have to make a file very light on the screen to get a good print and I didn't adjust this one before posting.

The one below was a little more clever.
Oddly, the company doing this pumping is from the Great Lakes, not either coast.
*As some wit once said "For those of you that don't live on the East Coast of the US, a nor'easter is a big friggin' storm."

So, when there are these patterns, and I'm alone, I walk along and photograph interesting ones. To the average beach walker this looks strange, this big bald man photographing what looks like grey sand. Occasionally I get stopped. Last Friday a woman walked up and asked me what I was taking pictures of. (I should mention here that these patterns are visible, but are much more subtle than the files I post. You can see the pattern, but just a little. I add a bit of contrast to bring them out.) She was almost angry about the waste of time I was manifesting. I told her about the patterns and how I saw them change every day. Then she looked down and "saw" what I was seeing. She got into it a little and, within a minute was saying"Look at that one, it's like feathers!"
Part of the fun of taking pictures is showing people things the way you see them, usually from a different way of seeing. But the real fun is when you get someone to look at something they've been looking at for years and see it differently.
For a photographer it was fascinating, as the light had this orange apocalyptic look to it all day, made more intense when the sun was low in the sky. This was taken last month while I walked with my friend John early in the day.
