Random Walks on the Beach

This Christmas I went to California, and while I was there I took the opportunity to do some random walks in the sand in Huntington Beach. The dry sand above the waterline was too loose to really get a good line, so I ended up down by the surf to get a better mark. The only problem with that, of course, is that the surf would erase some of my work every few minutes. So, the resulting walks were rather quick and ephemeral! I did shoot some frames for compositing, but I’m not sure how good they’ll look. Here are the four time-lapse walks I did, run together in a single video.
