VA Beach Sandsculpting 2014

The Sandsculpting Championship was amazing yet again this year!

I wondered why this gentleman had the opportunity to fix his sculpture. I later over heard people talking about how crabs had crawled all over his sculpture overnight, so they allowed him to put it back together.

VA Beach Sandsculpting 2011

My beach vacation was timed around the Neptune Festival so I was able to see the artists actually work on their sandsculptures. I didn’t know they were allowed to use bases and wooden boxes for forms. Takes a little bit of the awe away, but still pretty darn amazing!

Many of the sculptures were two, three, and even four-sided, meaning each side was a different sculpture. I didn’t necessarily walk around each one in order, so I hope I matched the fronts to the backs correctly.

The rest I only took a picture of one side.
