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.
