San Francisco-based artist Andres Amador etches large-scale intricate patterns on beaches along the coast of California. Using nature as a canvas and a garden rake as an art tool, he creates beautiful sand paintings that last only a short while before they are washed away by the tides.

Amador uses Google Earth to scout for beaches, sandbars and coastlines that inspire him with their interesting aesthetic and distinct features. Click through to see photographs of Amador’s beach art:
