The problem with this photo, as I see it, is there is no indication of scale.   My first thought was that the image needs something, perhaps a cow or two, but I just don't know.   In any case, I think its kind of a "groovie" photo.

These are the sand dunes right along Highway 1, near Pescadero State Beach.

And yes, that is blowing sand.   If the sand had it's way it would (god forbid) quickly cover the highway.   Clearing the drifting sand off the roadway keeps Cal-Trans busy.

So far I haven't had any luck, but I've been trying to get my good buddy from Ohio, Jan Bell of Bell Images interested in visiting the fabulous beaches of the San Mateo Coast (about 20 miles south of San Francisco) on one of his photo-adventures out here in the West.   Jan is an absolutely fabulous photographer -- I think he could do wonderful things with these dunes.

A nice set of images this morn. I went "ooo wow" on the banner shot when it opened up so that's what you got for my vote. I understand Mt. Hood right behind me has snow on it but I never ventured out of the house to take a look yesterday. Too cold. signed, Mr. Wimp

Oh wow, those sand shots are fantastic! Careful with your lenses, Don! I hate to see your camera catch a few grains of sand.
