Photographer's Note

The dunes of Corralejo in Fuerteventura are mainly white sand. To be more exact, it is not sand (SiO2) but mainly the remnants of sea shells, very similar to Deserto do Viana on Boa Vista island in Cape Verde. So the origin of the white "sand" is mainly organic.

The dunes of Corralejo is designated "Parque natural" and is several kilometers in size. If you walk it all the way to the coast you will see Lanzarote and Islote Los Lobos.

It is tempting to change the white balance or increase the color saturation when doing pics of this desert, but it is almost colorless, not yellow as the sahara sands. I tried to keep it as white as possible, but even my camera changed the WB in a way that it became yellow, so i desaturated it a bit.
