The Dunes of Maspalomas located in the south of the island of Gran Canaria, covering an area of 400 hectares, a beach about 3 km and a lagoon with aquatic vegetation that is refuge for migratory birds
The area is protected and in 1994 was classified as a national park. The site is home to several species of plants endemic to the Canary prepared to survive in this arid environment, rabbits and lizards are also species that have habitat for the dunes.
The dunes can only be crossed on foot or by camel, providing an exotic experience worthy of the Sahara desert.

This photo of sand dunes is very nice for both the composition and very precise framing the landscape, perfectly favoring the canonical rules of photography, but especially for the sand colors that are credited with an abundant nature.
Very well done.
Wish you a very nice weekend.

this is a fine representation of the dunes,taken at the optimum time of day to show the lovely curves created by the drifting sand,even the abundant footprints add to the interest of the image.
