Great Sand Dunes National Park, Colorado

When you think about the landscape of Colorado, sand dunes isn’t one of the first things that comes to mind. I have photographed many deserts and sand dunes around the world but what makes this one unique is spectacular mountain scenery surrounding the dunes, they are the tallest sand dunes in North America.

  1. Wonderful series showing creativity and vision….taking the ordinary and creating a work of art.

    Hi From Florida.

    Weather cloudy at the moment but warm. No aches and pains. So how and when did you get the opportuniy to visit the dunes in Colorado. Was this a scouting trip to see if there were workshop possibilities? Given the amount of snow in Ottawa these days I would not blame you for flying out of there. Lovely images by the way. Love the curves and the wonderful shadow detail. The curves are delicious. Most enjoyable.

    Thank Julie and Richard,

    I just processed these images, and I have many more yet to process from this trip. What an amazing place! This location is the one place in North America which is easy to get to and that reminds me of the sand dunes that are in Namibia – which in my opinion are the most photogenic dunes/subjects anywhere.

    I really enjoy your photo series and I too often return to the same places and always find a new perspective or view. Sometimes I try using a different lens and the light is constantly changing. Return visits help a photographer grow because they allow you to think and see differently.
