Couldn't agree more and that lone walker puts the dunes size into perspective

Absolutely beautiful with wonderful light. The shapes are sensual. I'm almost amazed how visible the person is considering the size in the landscape - it's the light, it's all about light.

A splendid image. I really like the inclusion of the human element to give this scene real scale. Very well done Smile

Tremendous sweep of the dunes with great side lighting to model it. The figure provides a sense of scale which is important with dunes. Beautiful image
