One of the unique features of the sand dunes at Great Sand Dunes National Park is you have to cross a creek, Medano Creek, to get to the them. It’s not particularly deep so it’s easy to cross and most vistors to the park rarely take notice of the body of water they’re crossing. But as you can see it creates it’s own visual features. Capturing these images in the pre-dawn hours not only gave these images their blue tones, but it also gave me a bit of a clean slate–wiping out all the human footprints from the day before.
Below are some more images from the creek. Or you can click here to view my Colorado Gallery.
