Beaches are the most dynamic places on Earth, offering an infinite variety of patterns and geological land formations. This book celebrates and solves the mysteries of the fascinating and frequently abstract beauty of gravitational effects at the water's edge. Lovers of natural history will appreciate the images of curiously sculpted potholes, towering sea stacks, sand and vegetal varieties, and blue sky reflected in striated rivulets, accompanied by diagrams and explanations of the natural forces at work. This book aims to enhance appreciation for oceans and their shape-shifting shorelines. They are, after all, wondrous.

The Ever-Changing Coastline: Tidal Forces at Work based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
The Ever-Changing Coastline is a collection of photographs showing how the Atlantic Ocean is changing the coastline! This book goes a little deeper into explaining how tides and waves work to make some of those spectator views that took millions of years to carve. If you want a book that is more than just a book with very pretty pictures but gives a detailed look at how some of those things came to be, you need to read this book!! I'm loving this Author with his knack to take a stunning picture but also tell the story of how it all came to be. Giving the details on how tides and waves work, just make the pictures come even more to life knowing what help created some really cool places on the East Coast. My only problem with this book is looking at places that I so want to visit soon and it gives you this feeling of being homesick for a place that is never the same everyday! Thank You to Joseph R. Votano for making this book be more than just another photo book of the coastline! I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book from Edelweiss!
