Sand Dunes To Snow Drifts
Photo By Edward Ditomas

  • Title: Sand Dunes To Snow Drifts
  • State/Province/Region: Colorado
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Great Dunes National Park
  • Nearest Town: Alamosa, Colorado
  • Brief Directions: Great Dunes NP is located approximately 35 miles north of Alamosa in south central Colorado.
  • Best Season: Spring
  • Description: Great Dunes National Park is not nearly as widely known as Yellowstone, Yosemite, Death Valley and others making it a great place to get photos of nature instead of shoulder to shoulder tourists. The dunes are nestled along the wester slopes of the Sangre de Cristo range in the San Luis Valley in south central Colorado. Prevailing winds from the southwest drop the dust and sand they are carrying as they rise to pass over the mountains.

  • Gear: Nikon D200 f/2.8 70-200mm lens

    I love how the Milky Way appears to be a continuation of the river – no accident I’m sure. I’m guessing you had to take your sky shot with no moon in the sky, and the foreground with the moon low...
