Mono Inspirations Winner: Taylor Duncan

Great Sand Dunes National Park, Colorado, USA
Canon 5D Mk III, Canon 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II, f/20, 1/60sec, ISO 400

In late May 2017, my girlfriend and I embarked on a 3000+ mile road trip. We traveled from our home in Wisconsin to Great Sand Dunes National Park, Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park.

While we were in Great Sand Dunes, we camped in the dunes for our first night in the park. I was taken by the ever-changing beauty of the dunes with all their lines, shapes and shadows. It was almost like they were alive as the landscape was completely different from sunset to sunrise!

When we woke up for sunrise, I was pretty excited for what I could capture as first light hit the sand formations. I could have shot in any direction and come up with just an incredible picture. This scene was one of many I shot that morning but, to me, it is absolute perfection. It has the wavy lines in the sand leading straight up to a majestic dune lit by the coming sun, with the background lit just enough by the sunrise. It was a very special moment!

We wish to congratulate this month’s 'Monochromatic Inspirations' winner. This lovely picture can be viewed in High Definition in the latest issue of the magazine
