Hand in the Sand

Category: Spontaneous Moments


Photo and caption by Marquess Beck

The Monument to the Drowned (Monumento al Ahogado in Spanish), or more commonly known as the Hand (la Mano), on Brava Beach in Punta del Este. It's a popular landmark and photo spot for locals and foreigners alike, but my patience was rewarded with this shot after waiting for numerous families to get their photos!

Location: Brava Beach, Punta del Este, Uruguay
