Sand avalanche

The wind blown edge of sand has given way, collapsing down the leeward side of the dune. A sand storm a few nights before had created fresh edges, some of which were not quite stable. Here some of the last rays of the setting sun cut across an edge perpendicular to the crest of the dune, highlighting the collapsed miniature canyon in the sand.
