So goes the beautiful, shoreline art of San Francisco resident Andres Amador.

Amador uses nothing but a rake, a rope and wet sand at low tide to create his intricate, geometric “paintings,” according to Viralnova.

Amador said he prefers the wet sand at low tide, because it allows him to create pieces using contrasting colors.
