Moving sands

Something I had been waiting for – the annual Potters’ Market. Last year I had been spending quite a while at the booth with the moving sand sculptures – or whatever their English name is. In German they’re simply called Sandbilder (sand pictures). These things with different kinds of sand between two panes of glass, some water and a few air bubbles. Turn them like an hourglass and get the most fantastic landscapes. – I didn’t buy one last year and regretted it deeply so I waited impatiently for this year’s market. 😉

The same landscape from the front –

and from the back –

I could watch the forming of the landscapes for hours, it’s so soothing.
