I define a minute wave as a wave of about 1-5 cm (or about 0,4 - 2 inches), commonly found at the shore of lakes and oceans. Due to their littleness and movement, they often pass unperceived.
a matter of mind
water, fire, heaven & earth
Please enjoy the natural artworks created by these minute waves, in cooperation with sand, stones, plants and the sunlight in the photographs below. To order a print, please visit my shop to find out how to do.

However, if “frozen” in a micro photograph, their beautiful shapes and colors become visible to the beholder, and reveal natural artworks of great sculptural and graphical beauty.
“… In another series, “Minute waves”, Steffen Faisst emphasizes tiny waves breaking at the shore. Color is the focus of this series. Color and the fact that the human brain finds figures in everything it sees. We know this from discovering dragons, dogs and faces in clouds in the sky. In “minute waves”, Steffen Faisst presents us eyes, amphitheaters and crossroads. All formed by random graphical patterns created by waves and captured in the right moment. But colors dominate this series. Colors originating from the glow of the sun, the green or brown colors of sea weed, or the billions of color shades of the small sea pebbles on the ground. As for the other series, it takes a trained eye and a sense for esthetics to find the ideal moment to hit the trigger. Or in other words, it requires an artist’s eye to create these beautiful pictures, and Steffen Faisst apparently has one. …”
