We all at some point have done little scribbles into the sand when spending time on a beach. But this guy here has taken this to a whole new level.
Jim Denevan is definitely a name to remember. He dedicates parts of his (artisitic) life to drawing figures into sand. Huge figures. And when I m saying huge I mean HUUUUGE!!!
And when you see them you think, man needs some sort of computer planning them but Jim said he doesn't plan them ahead at all. He just stands there on the beach or the desert, looks at the horizon and thinks, and then he just starts walking with his rake. Miles after miles, hours after hours - to create these unforgettable shapes. And after water and wind have erased them from the planet's surface all that remains are these stunning photographs.
He created what he calls the largest piece of art in history - gigantic circles measuring 9 miles in circumference. Instead of a rake he used a car to create these lines though. The result can even be seen with Google Earth.

A little inspiration for the next time you get bored during your beach holiday. ;)
