Hi Gloria and welcome to TE.
This is a magnificent first picture, well composed and the colors are interesting. Picture size could be slightly increased so we could enjoy all the details.
Thank you for the photo and comments

Welcome to TE Gloria, and thank you for sharing ... I find your note most fascinating: I never realised that dunes could be so huge, 300m is very high!
