Dune Days (IV)

Yes, the dunes really are this beautiful. The trick to taking a picture with this kind of deep shadow is to wake up before the sun rises and walk away from your camp to the top of the dune ridge. You'll be tired for the rest of the day, but it'll be worth it.

And while the sun rises and slowly starts to wake the rest of the group down by the cars, you can sit quietly and think about how great that bottle of wine is going to taste tonight at sunset.

Besides, how many people get to watch the sun rise and set on this corner of the world. We didn't see a single person over the three days we were camping.
