Mountains of Great Sand Dunes National Preserve stand sentinel over Great Sand Dunes National Park, CO. Imaged at sunrise in August 2006 while hiking High Dune.
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.
reminds me of silk. the clouds add a very cool touch to this great photo!
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.
