the land artist

strijdom van der merwe, a self described "land artist" based in south africa, just blows me away with the simplicity of his art. he works with sand, water, wood, and rocks to create geometrical forms whose
fragile beauty is documented with photographs before their transience.

this shot is wonderful on so many levels.....the shapes.....the lighting........

check out his website here for more of his work.
