[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.

A beatiful desert scenic with warm rich colors and the rolling sand dunes add a very nice form to the image. The light is perfect.

Hello Eleu :)

The fragment of this Californian desert looks in the light of the setting sun beautifully.
Your composition in the perfect realization delights light, colours and details.
The fantastic effect, I like him very much!

Best wishes.

Two I was in Yumie for years ago and I put in the picture with the name of the city.
I made them in the movement from the car. B. :)

Hi Eleu,

Hi Eleu,
A typical California desert scene captured very well.
Great light management between the mix of sunny/shaded lighting.
The clear blue sky contrasts very well against the brown desert.
Very nicely composed and presented. TFS,

Hello Eleu,

Beautiful dunes undulate between shadow and light.
The tufts embellissentce red sandy desert.
Congratulations on this beautifully composed presentation.
TFS. Kind regards.


Hoi Eleu,
Seems to be in the Sahara .... but no, it is Arizona.
Great capture with good exposure and colors.
The composition is good too, but maybe you should place that dune in the background a bit more to the left ... it is possible with a shovel. ;-)
