Getting down at eye level with children and animals when taking their picture usually results in more pleasing photos than shooting from a standing position.

With these interesting, natural sand sculptures, I knew I’d have to get down to their “eye” level, too. Instead of lying on my belly and taking a chance on getting sand in my camera, I took a shot of the sand formations from inside a natural dip from a crouching position.

I framed and shot quickly to capture bits of figures for more interest. In this case, my husband’s legs and my middle child’s head and shoulders.

Try shooting from different angles. It can add a whole new dimension to your photography.

I took this photograph in mid-June at Agate Beach in Newport, Oregon.

  1. That is quite some extraordinary sand formation. You did very well to go low when capturing them. I really like the person walking away in the background. It’s almost like his (or her) footsteps left those lovely sand sculptures. A great shot!
