Photographer's Note

For the past few years I have returned to the annual Harrison world famous Sand Castle Competition. This year I thought of heading out in the morning for some morning light captures but found they opened up too late in the morning for some good lighting. This photo was taken around 6 pm just before the sun descended behind the mountains behind me. I only had about 30 minutes to quickly walk through the displays and capture what I liked before the entire sandy shoreline disappeared into evening shade.
I think it was the angle of lighting that caught my attention here, and the fact that the display of the old man in his rocking chair sand wall was positioned perfectly for deep shadows in these carved highlights. Sometimes I have to wonder where the artists are coming from or what they are trying to say with their creations. On the other side of this wall is the man blowing only air and the candle remains lit. Also this photo is cropped to show only the essence of this creation. The wider view shows a trailer on the beach that I felt distracted from this presentation. Enjoy!
