Photographer's Note

Another shot of the Great Sand Dunes National Park. This was taken mid-afternoon, and I used pp to bump up the contrast and increase saturation a bit (via curves), as well as adjust the color of the sky (I tried leaving it slightly blue for a more natural image, but this coloring seems to work better for me). If you look at the lower left dune, you can see sand blowing across the dunes - winds were gusting very strongly when I was trying to take this photo! Also, on the right-hand side you can see tracks made from fellow visitors on their way to the highest dune (each track is 3-4 feet wide from multiple people taking the same path). Hope you like it!
