First Picture in a series from the Great Sand Dunes National Park in southern CO. These are the highest sanddunes in North America Topping out at over 750ft above the valley floor. Pretty impressive place.
the clouds in the upper left make a natural balance to the smooth sands in the lower right... right place at the right time... nice sweeping motion of the blue sky in between
Wow, that's huuuugge
I'm awe-struck, almost speechless (note i said almost) how foreign, how amazing how beautiful... right i'm going to burst in to a verse of 'how great thou art' just for the sake of it... in front of my computer. That really is stunningly wow. And the taking of the photo.. great too. Border works realllly well.. shame there wasn't a bit of light on the dunes to highlight but I really am blowover.
OMG! Thank you so very much. Yeah everytime I went to take a photo there the sun went behind the clouds so all of my photos came out very dark.
Shame but they are still breathtaking so it doesn't really matter... in fact its a compliment to you and your photographic skills also poses the possibility of even better photos which is always exciting
A beautiful image all around with an exellent border to boot.
Okay, so I just finished watching The Cell for the first time and i'm comparing this photo with the open sequence of the movie. I like this a lot. Deserts and the like always make me think of a twisted sort of purity. For me they're like living pieces of art, especially when it comes to sand dunes. They always have an interesting shape and feel to them. I think you've captured the folds and pockets of it well along with it being unmarred. I also like the three black figures that you can see on the crest of one of the dunes. It just makes the place seem even larger. I'm a little curious, though, of the spot that's in the sky, right above the dunes. It's slightly distracting to the eye.
