Did the sky mimic the sand or the sand mimic the sky?

Did the sky mimic the sand or the sand mimic the sky?

This photo was taken at sunset at Sunshine Beach on Queensland's Sunshine Coast. My wife and I had been walking through Noosa National Park and we had turned around to head home. I had kept an eye on the sky all day (as most photographers do) and I saw there was potential for an interesting pattern in the sky at sunset. When I saw getting better I immediately thought of this little stream which flowed through to the sea which we had passed on Sunshine Beach. I started walking faster and then ran down the large amount of stairs onto Sunshine Beach to make sure I didn't miss the shot. As it turned out this pattern stayed around for a while.

In answer to the question in the title....I think the sky mimic'd the sand.
