On the edge

By magnus
Probably the most remarkable thing about this photograph is that I took it at all.
This sharp topped dune runs for miles through the desert and as the sun dropped the contrasts in colour were quite striking. Had to walk some way to find a relatively vegetation free spot (still had to clone a bit out though).
With a temperature approching 50C it would have been much easier to stay in the car!

Well worth getting out I would say. Have you tried turning it 90degrees and making a letterbox crop? Bet it would look pretty good to. Sylv.
