Jim Denevan makes enormous temporary drawings on sand, earth and ice that are eventually erased by waves and weather. Thank goodness we can still see his work in beautiful photos like these and soon a documentary film directed by Meredith Danluck.
The photo above shows Brush Creek rushing across a wide beach at low tide near Port Orford, Oregon. It was snapped at the base of Humbug Mountain a little past sunset on November 28, 2011. Venus and the waxing crescent Moon are conspicuous in the twilight sky.
