Stabilising Sand

Here’s a shot taken at The Hawks Nest Dunes.
This was taken on the same field trip as these three photos.

I feel as though this photo has a strong sense of layering due to the sand taking up most of the lower portion, the vegetation providing a sort of cap on parts of the sand and the clouds taking up most of the upper portion. I also feel the sense of layering is there due to the differing height levels and shades of the sand.

I like how the vegetation provides a stronger sense of definition to the dune, as well as the way it’s scattered. It gives a sense of transition to the landscape, which of course there is as, whilst occurring over a long timescale, dune systems remain in a constant state of change.

I also like how massive everything seems which (other than this particular spot being quite large) is helped by the openness of the scene.

This photo is available as a print here.

This is my submission into the one hundred-and-nineteenth Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

The theme for this one is “My Hideaway“.

I’ve included this shot as often I consider such a thing to often be away from the city and toward something closer to an idea of the natural.

The challenge is hosted by four people and cycles weekly:

Week 1 – Patti

Week 2 – Ann-Christine aka Leya

Week 3 – Amy

Week 4 – Tina

Leya is hosting this one. Tina is hosting next week’s.

I recommend checking out how people are interpreting the challenges. I also recommend joining in. It’s a growing, fun community.

I hope you enjoy.

    Vegetation helps keeping the dune in place – well done as a hideaway.
