Thanks, Natural! It's a beautiful place and the sand dunes at low sun makes such a nice foreground for the rugged mountains. --mark d.

The advantage with being early up on the dunes is that the overnight winds have cleaned footprints out of most areas, leaving that beautiful, untrampled texture. And, yes, I love when the sky isn't "bald". :-) --mark d.
