[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Algodones Dunes is a large erg (sand dune field) located in the southeastern portion of the U.S. state of California, near the border with Arizona and the Mexican state of Baja California. The field is approximately 72 kilometers long by 10 kilometers wide (45 miles by 6 miles) and extends along a northwest-southeast line that correlates to the prevailing northerly and westerly wind directions. The name "Algodones Dunes" refers to the entire geographic feature, while the administrative designation for that portion managed by the Bureau of Land Management is the Imperial Sand Dunes Recreation Area (sometimes called the Glamis Dunes). (From Wikipedia)

Imperial Sand Dunes is about 10 miles west of Yuma, Arizona.

Hi Eleu,

What a beautiful way to present such rounded sand dunes from a well chosen POV!
The picture is razor-sharp and clarity is nice.
The contrast between the golden sand and the blue sky is well seen.
A great play between the light and shadow indeed.
Well taken!

best regards,

Bom dia Eleu,
How beautiful dunes captured almost frontally and with a POV that leads ours eyes to explore everything slowly in search of beauties there recorded.
Great work MF
