14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

Crescent Moon Spring quietly lies in the sand hill for thousands of years. Sand doesn’t fall off when wind blows, drought doesn’t dry up the water, known as the "sand sea wonders." Early in the morning, I climbed Mingsha Mountain, overlooking the Crescent Moon Spring.
