16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Sand Dunes against the Sangre de Cristo Mountains

Taken early in the morning while hiking in Great Sand Dunes National Park, CO. It was breathtaking to see such an immense and varying landscape against such a solid background. You can see the footprints of fellow hikers that were washed away minute later by the wind.
