A sea of sand- Imperial Sand Dunes, California



Although difficult to see, this image was made at the top of a dune peak (the edge being in the lower left corner) looking out onto the sea of sand. It is a simple landscape- I felt somewhat at a loss of how to frame this image.

I love this landscape, though. I especially love how the wind changes the dunes, and how the sand cleaves into distinct shapes.

I also love how I got a huge workout climbing to the top! Phew! I thought climbing at sea level wouldn't tax this crunchy person, who lives at 4500 feet normally. The dunes kicked me, all right!

location: Interstate 8, exit 156, Grays Well Rd
