A Winter Morning at Great Sand Dunes
The Eastern Dune complex and Mt. Harart, Great Sand Dunes National Park and Wildlife Refuge
A cold and blustery winter day in Great Sand Dunes, facing the East facing dune complex and the San De Cristo range to the North. The wind was blowing between 25 and 30 MPH today and if you look closely at the dunes you can see the sand as it tops each rise and undulation in the on the dune.
The colours found in the dunes themselves are always changing. The colour of the different sands, interplaying with the Magnetite constantly on the move, constantly changing and never fail to amaze me. From time to time, I will compare images I’ve taken less than a week apart and the color and the details of the shapes have changed significantly. This is one of my favorite places in the world.
This image is presented as a five panel panorama that covers nearly 175 degrees of view! The base measurements for this image is 19 by 82 1/2 inches (each panel is 16 ½ by 19 inches) when presented on Aluminum, and very similar sizes when presented on archival canvas. Of course, this image can be sized for your needs and to fit your environment. Let’s talk about it!
