Three Shafts Of Light

Location: Great Sand Dunes National Park, Colorado
Given the opportunity to make a single-day trip to Great Sand Dunes, I enjoyed some beautiful Summer monsoonal weather in the afternoon. While the monsoonal moisture brought a great deal of precipitation throughout Southern Colorado, I was fortunate enough to walk miles through the dunes without getting wet.
You will notice darker areas in the dunes. These are from previous rainstorms. The moisture in the soil made the dunes much easier to walk through, and I sunk in the sand only a few times.
I made many of the images with a red filter to bring out a dark sky with emphasis on the light and shadows.
