Description

Morning light on the Coral Pink Sand Dunes following a night of light rain. The rain saturated the sand and intensified the color which is the result of a hematite coating on the quartz crystals. While working in this environment the color is so intense that the brain attempts to neutralize it. Anything that should appear as a neutral tone, like my shoes, appears blue. Correcting the color in post-processing was simplified by having the lonely cloud in the sky to serve as a neutral.
