Description: This beautiful sea of sand lies again in Scenic Idaho...that offers Deserts like Bruneau Dunes, mountains like Sawtooths, lakes like Pend O'Reilly, Waterfalls like Shoshone Falls and Mesa Falls, craters and lava tubes like in Craters of the moon, farms like palouse.
On a family camping trip, I took a break in the evening to explore the tallest dune (490 ft). I took a diversion as the sun seemed to reach the horizon earlier than I thought. This place lies in the valley and sun sets early here. On the way I watched beetles crawling on the sand, rabbits playing in the bushes, met birds returning to their nests. I also observed and carefully avoided the countless tracks of beetles, coyotes, and rabbits and possibly snakes too. I came to the base of his smaller dune, where I was welcomed by this sea of sand. I was the only surfer there on these waves, along with a couple of bushes like the one I captured here.
I used the 16-35 mm lens on 20D. Tripod as low as possible. Used polarize
