I found so many colors in sand dunes around Dubai and one of them was this color...
I know it's disappointing where it is still not Sahara but a small sand dune at Brooklyn.
The Eureka Dunes lie in the remote Eureka Valley, an enclosed basin at 3000 foot elevation located northwest of Death Valley, they are the tallest sand dunes in California, the tallest in all of North America. They rise suddenly more than 680 feet above the dry lakebed at their western base.

This is a shot from Death Valley...really I only sort of like it...the more time I spend with it, driving around listening to the radio, holding its hand...the more I like it...so I'm finally ready to introduce it to everyone...
This was one of those, "Hey look over there shots.." We took it during the workshop....the opposite direction was quite nice as well...and then someone (I think me) said, "Hey look over there..." and everyone turned and took some snaps of the light for the brief period of time it lit up the dunes....
here's something nice for you as well...if you like contests...and prizes. We've been working hard to get the first Aperture Academy photo contest underway...it's good...BIG prizes. $1,000 and more...it's open to ANYONE in the world...
you should totally enter...you won't have to worry about any of us ApCad folks entering either...as we'll be on the judging panel.
Being down at Ocean City off season has its benefits where situations like this can be found in the early morning light with no footsteps. Come summer, these pristine conditions will not be found. I took these capture(s) as I headed out to the pier for sunrise captures. Once I headed down there, this sand would have footsteps :)
Under the varying light conditions there, it was a pretty cool time to take photographs.
Santa Cruz Island can be seen on the horizon. It is part of the Channel Islands National Park.

Mesquite Dunes, Death Valley at sunrise.
Just returned from Death Valley. The Mesquite Dunes have so much to offer, and the low sun over those dunes makes the shadows fabulous to the camera eye!

High winds at the beach and streams of sand blowing round my ankles. Light was still dull. Thank you very much to all who viewed or commented on my last shot. It has given my account counter a sudden boost.

I left the human element on this image to show some sense of scale.

Seus graos sao como historias
seus graos cabem em
sao como a agulha da Electrolux
que cortaram como diamantes
os vaos e caminhos entranhados
de minha mente.
o bater do coracao...
Sera que vivo de lembrancas,
sera que vivo de passado
sera que o presente
seja o mesmo que minhas
vejo meus graos
espalhados no ar
e com ele vejo tambem
lembrancas se despedindo de mim mesmo, como que querendo ser livre,
querendo no vento brincar...
Dancam, valseiao, atravessam carregadas pelo vento e as vejo
diluidas nas Ruas da Espanha....
