Sand substrates...Post your pics

I am setting up a new 10 gallon tonight that i got for free over the weekend. To make this tank vastly different from my other tank, i wanna go with a sand substrate. Please post pics of your planted tanks with sand substrates so i can see a few examples.

Thanks in Advance.

Sand starts out pretty white if you have pool filter sand and flourescent bulbs, but algae slow takes over and darken it up a bit. I don't see a feasible way to keep it white.

Here are pictures of my 2.5 gallon and 10 gallon with black tahitian moon sand. The 10 gallon pic is old, but you get the picture.
