Sky Watch Friday: Great Sand Dunes



This place is amazing. Just you and the landscape, the sand beneath your toes, the big blue sky above you. You start climbing to the top of the dunes, just a little bit farther, then you see it. The dunes stretch out in front of you and continue for as far as you can see. The mountains tower over you like giants. I could have spent the entire day here just lying on the sand.

For more beautiful sky pictures go to Wiggers World

Hi Kim,
Thanks for coming by for a visit. I thought I would come over for a look at your blog. It would appear from your profile photo you are a loving person. Wilmette? Near Chicago? Dunes taken on vacation or photo trip? Beautifully composed land scape. Rich color. Very nice. Come back anytime you take a notion.

Like you I would wish to spend many hours soaking that place in..
