8 Amazingly Beautiful And Unique Sand Sculptures, Some Of Which Seem To Defy Gravity

This guy who goes by the name Sandcastlematt on Flickr takes sand sculpture and castle building to a whole new level. Using a building method wherein he slowly drips wet sand to create often abstract structures, Matt has come up with unconventional sand castles that seem to have come from another world.

In a simple tutorial detailing the process, Matt stated that his "style sort of emerged over the summer of 2004, and I've made maybe 30 "castles" since." To build his unique castles, Matt makes use of materials that he finds in the beach like sticks, plywood, fishing lines, and other junk.

Here's 8 of some of his best work. All photos by Matt. You can view more of them here.
