It is funny because this morning I also show dunes, in Morocco. Beautiful curves and light on yours, I like the desert.

I dream of that every nights... :-) Like the softness of light and tones. And it's funny to see the snow on the mountains background, what a contrast !!!

That photographer looks so tiny--reminds us of how big world actually is.

beautiful image !

If that is someone walking up the dunes, it really puts it into perspective how large this is. Interesting how you make mention of footprints everywhere when this looks undisturbed and smooth as silk.

@Steven: Look at the edges of the dune. Those shadows are footprints; they were everywhere.
Stunning image, Steve! I love it!!!

It is really an extraordinary place... Here the desert and its sand dunes and not far, the snow... Love this contrast and your photo !

fantastic place, it's quite amazing how vast it is!

That's just plain cool!

So minimal and fantastic.

It is common to walk the edge? Sounds.. dangerous and cliché when you say it like that. So is that a photographer out there? He really puts the size of these hills into perspective.

@Dutch: Actually, some of the dunes are covered with tracks from top to bottom. It seems to be pretty safe.
Yes, that is a photographer.
Awesome! Reminds me of the old movie "Dune" - the sands of Arrakis and Paul Muad'Dib.

wow,, amazing shot . Looks like a peach yogurt with little bug on the top :)) I am joking of course, but this color really looks peachy , and so delicious :)

@MARIANA: That guy does look like a bug in the yogurt! ;-)
The surface looks so smooth. The sands must be very fine!

I'm speechless Steve... such magnificent landscape and such exquisite composition! Love this so much!

Superb shot of the dunes, the photog in shots gives a good sense of the scale of them
3 Jun 2010 2:55pm
I think it's beautiful solitude!
3 Jun 2010 10:48pm
So big, so soft, so inviting !

Good relationship between the grandeur of the place and the smallness of the man.
