Dunes at Dusk

Earth Day weekend, I drove to Colorado hoping to get some dramatic light and contrast of the dunes at first/last light. I spent the majority of the day at the dunes, but I had to stop in Alamosa for a quick brew. Later on my afternoon hike, the wind really picked up and put my eyes and gear to the test as blowing sand filled everything not well covered. There was one other photographer at the top with me, everyone else went home or stayed low. Our reward was a front row seat to scenes like this.
