Sculpted Lines II

In July 2023, I released  ‘Sculpted Lines’,  a series about abstract formations of sand that I photographed at ‘Rubjerg Knude’, a drifting coastal dune in the Jutland region of Denmark. ​​​​​​​

For the sequel of ‘Sculpted Lines’, I focused on the detailed features of the area around ‘Råbjerg Mile’, a migrating inland dune that is located between Skagen and Frederikshavn in Northern Denmark, approximately 44 kilometers north-east of ‘Rubjerg Knude’. With 2 square kilometers in size and a volume of 4 million cubic meters of sand, it is the largest moving dune in Northern Europe.

Stretching westward towards Skagerrak, where the Mile initially took shape over three centuries ago, the dune leaves a damp and moist trail of sand behind it. ​​​​​​​The wet sand appears darker and smoother, while the dry sand takes on a lighter, granulated texture. The stark contrast between the two results in intriguing wave and ripple patterns that showcase nature’s hidden artistry. 

Abstract patterns etched in sand, uniquely sculpted from the dynamic forces of water, wind, and erosion. Temporary and ever-changing.
