Rake art

I’m afraid I’ve forgotton which blog I saw this on, so can’t give a proper acknowledgement… But here is a set of photos–created by Lenny & Meriel–of ‘rake art’. They use a rake to create patterns in the sand and then take aerial photos of the designs using a kite.

A few years ago, I spent a glorious summer on the island of Pabbay (outer Hebrides of Scotland) and have fond memories of rigging up a camera to a kite and taking air-photos of the island’s beaches– although the most creative we ever got was making ‘sand-angels’. I wish we’d thought of rake art then– I think it’s simply beautiful.
