Shooting a sand dune as a sand dune is not expressive. It is descriptive. To express the nature of the dune, we must either emphasize its scale, or else interpret its meaning through light, color, and texture. In this case, I use all of these factors to express the flavor of a Sahara sunset. I do not show the sun itself, but instead use the sun to reveal the textures in the sand created by the wind. Using a 28mm wideangle lens, I force the dunes to stretch to the horizon – a field of textured red sand against a fading blue sky.
