Wonderful capture, Cheryl! The bare trees on the flat ground, with those orange dunes... what a place!

WONDERFUL composition, colors and shadows. Sad and beautiful at the same time. I'm sure these two words came to your mind while making this fantastic photograph and that is exactly what it makes us feel now that we look at it.
If Georgia O'Keeffe had seen this landscape, I'm sure she would have painted it.
Congratulations on this very well-deserved POTD, my dear friend!!!
