Doesnt the dance of light and shadow in sand dunes look amazing? One of my favorite subjects to photograph. A great capture!

Herb Riddle on December 30, 2013

Hi Shaun, yep the lighting on such dunes is a delight as it is a challenge for us. I must re-look at the others I took of this place. Thanks for sharing your enjoyment of this.

Happy 2014, Herb

My dear Herb ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ very nice shot!!!!! ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥....F/L..... greetings from Romania vterezia

Herb Riddle on April 29

Gianni, Jack and Vterezia very happy to bring this scene to you. It is always good to see you here and read your comments. I must admit that on my travels so far this year the number of folk with quality camera's and lenses makes me think that there will not be any unique pictures to capture in the future. But, sometimes we can fool our viewers, ie in this, I was surrounded behind a fence by loads of other people pushing and jostling with their camera's and I also selected with my lens and cropping a special spot with nobody in shot (quite difficult to do!). I ramble...

Best wishes, Herb
