Great Sand Dunes NP

Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve - July 27, 2008
View from High Dune to the north
Taken the morning after a heavy rain which made hiking much easier
and rewarded us with dune formations like this one
Truly one of my favorite pictures ever!

What a photo!

Dear Kathy, this is a masterpiece! What a wild and yet so eloquent shape that dune has! I see by the way that we are both Canon PowerShot users! :-)

Many greetings from Salzburg and thanks for all of your kind votings - you're always among the very first to look at my pictures!! :-)

Re: What a photo!

Thank you! Yes, I used my G9 for that photo but I now also use a Canon XSi (450).

Keep posting!

Of lines & sight...

What an exquisite line. It could conceivably be a mountain range of itself. I can see why it is one of your favorite images. Beautiful!

great photo

This is just beautiful. Although I live in Co., I've only been to GSD once. Such an unexpected sight in the middle of the San Luis Valley and up against the Sangre de Cristos.
