I was walking along a beach in Panama, looking for interesting patterns and textures to photograph. I headed out of the resort are to a quieter area where the sand had not been disturbed when I saw this coconut and a large area of undisturbed sand. There was a culvert up the beach where the runoff from the nearby village found its way to the ocean. There had just been a large storm (check out this image of the coming storm) and the rushing rain water had pulled the sand into this beautiful textured pattern. The human eye craves variation within patterns and I felt that I had a pretty good example of that here. The coconut provides an interesting interruption in the lines in the sand as they pull your from the left foreground to the the right background. The low point of view, (I was laying on the ground), and the wide angle lens, (10mm), accentuate this movement.
