Photographer's Note

This image was taken at the end of an incredible buggy tour through the sand dunes that stretch several hundred feet high. I had only 3 shots to get a satisfying one, as the tour guide wanted to reach Huacachina before darkness. So I had to lie down to get my favourite composition. I used a Singh-Ray graduated ND filter (three f-stop, soft-step grade) to handle the high contrast between the sand dunes and the setting sun.

Huacachina is a village in the Ica Region, in southwestern Peru. It is located in the Ica Province, near the city of Ica.
