Grains of Sand

This photo was taken on an early morning sunrise on Hilton Head Island in South Carolina. As I walked out to the beach through the dunes area, I could see the sun rising over the dunes and beating across the grasses. The light reflected made for a really detailed photo of the sand on the dunes.
