Sunset is the best time to photograph the sand dunes. The dunes' rich colors are emphasized by the setting sun, and their graceful shape is outlined by the long shadows. The attached photo shows that a clean shot in the sand dunes is hard to get. Enlarge the photo and you'll see footprints all over the place. Also the surrounding mountains can be noisy when I try to keep the composition simple. Sometimes the plants get in the way too. At last I found a perfectly clean angle but my camera ran out of battery.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
