This was definitely one of my favorite shots of the day. I had my camera locked at this position taking various images while the sand blew across the dunes. Then as I saw the bird approaching, I knew image would be a special one. The birds long shadow across the dune is my favorite element in this composition.

Sand Dunes make for such great abstract images under really any lighting conditions.

While exploring I noticed a little beetle cruising beneath my feet. It was certainly a nice surprise to see life out there in the sand.

This image reminded me of patterns you would see on a tiger. I love the mirrored patterns created by the dune ridge here.
