As Numerous as the Grains of Sand

I originally passed over this photo. The problem is that the light I used to illuminate the foreground was way too bright on the sand at the left. Some work with Lightroom and Photoshop to tone it down has made this salvageable. This was the first of many shots I took as twilight rapidly approached. Since it was the first, it was also the one with the most contrast in the sky. This is a single exposure, 15mm fisheye lens, Canon 5D Mark II.

 

After the rock that the lone cypress tree sits on, this is perhaps the most photographed rock in the state. See it at SUNSET here
