sand sculpted

The annual Hampton Beach Master Sand Sculpting Competition started last Thursday and ran through yesterday at noon. This year I decided to take a Friday afternoon holiday so I could see the sculptors in action at a time when their creations were closing in on a finished state. The competitors have until noon on Saturday to finish their work - but since the front of the sculptures face inland visiting on Saturday morning means that the sun would be shining in my eyes. Friday afternoon was a good choice.

It always amazes me to see something so detailed carved out of sand.

More amazing creations in sand can be seen in the gallery sand scuplted.

According to the event website the sculptures will be lit for evening viewing through July 7th.
