Picture Story

Dawn on the dunes ... a soaking rain and steady wind always leave amazing patterns in the sand. The tranquility of this hour ... the subtle changes in light as the sunrises ... the patterns in the sand are mesmerizing ... truly one of those Zen moments. This image, originally shot in color, really popped when converted to black and white. I pushed the contrast up a bit in PSE to accentuate the patterns in the sand.

    Much different from your stunning Arizona sunsets. This is fascinating in a completely different way.
    Texture, black & white… Hard to take my eyes off the image, the lines won’t allow me to escape.

      Howard Paley, I love the way you caught the detail of the way the sand lies on the dunes. A stunning image.
