The shapes, curvatures and nuances of sand dunes have always casted their spell on me. The different textures and patterns you get from contrasting lighting angles can change the contour, configuration and shadows of your composition drastically. Part of the fun for me when shooting sand dunes is you never know what the shifting light will create in front of you, so you need to be prepared with your choice of location, angle of the setting or rising sun or moon, and time of year.


I was late getting to the dunes this day because I was shooting my image "Solace" earlier and lost track of time. I figured I would go ahead and try to make it to the dunes before sunset. Once I parked my truck I had a mile or so to walk in the dunes, which is not easy, and find a great location as I was losing light fast. As I was looking for the perfect spot I saw the shadows slowly bring to life the dunes so I set up my camera in this area and framed this ridge for a perfect composition.
