While exploring the backcountry of America's desert southwest I came upon the
brightest orange sand dunes I have ever seen. The deep color of the sand is
intensified by the moisture from a light rain that stopped just minutes earlier.
I waited perhaps 20 minutes for moving clouds to allow sunlight to hit the dunes
to accentuate their texture before capturing the picture.
