This is a digital image of the beach at 'Siesta Key' in Sarasota, Florida. A series of finely detailed texture layers have been added to the image. Final editing consists of tonal and colour adjustments. The texture layers are personal photographs taken with a 105mm Macro lens.
'Unlike beaches elsewhere that are made up mostly of pulverized coral, Siesta Beach's sand is 99% quartz. Even on the hottest days, the sand is so reflective that it feels cool underfoot. It's estimated that the sand on Siesta Beach and Crescent Beach on Siesta Key is millions of years old, having its origin in the Appalachians and flowing down the rivers from the mountains until it eventually was deposited on the shores of Siesta Key'.
