Sunset over Kelso Dunes

When I swiveled back in the direction of the sun, it had further dropped hovering right above the mountains. I quickly replanted my tripod.

Every surface its ray touched turned bright orange. The dunes were soaking up all the energy permeating the air like heated iron. The brightness never seemed to diminish for a while.

The vast field behind the dune, on which I was, had already fallen in the long shadows of the mountains. Wished that there were some clouds overhead, but that wasn’t something that I had control over.

Before the dune sank in the long shadows, I composed a shot and pressed the shutter button.
