Photograph of Wind Ripples on Talofofo Beach

Photo of wind ripples on Talofofo Beach.

    Here we have beautiful magnetite-crested asymmetrical wind ripples in the dry sand of Talofofo Beach. If this beach were to be instantly lithified (turned to rock), the wind ripples and my footprints would be preserved as sedimentary structures.
