After a late night of shooting the dunes for a time lapse video and some great astrophotography stills we caught the sunrise as the sun hit the landscape. This was right after sunrise, an early morning scenic panorama view of The Colorado Great Sand Dunes against snow cover Rocky Mountain Peaks as a backdrop.
The dunes are always changing shapes as the sand gets blown around in some of the intense wind that happens here. There is a great camping area here but you really have to make reservations way in advance as it is always full and booked up.
Your chances of seeing wildlife in this area is high. There is a ton of deer and elk here. If you drive in at night please keep your speed down as you never know if wildlife might jump right out in front of you. We had a close call with a heard crossing the road. It was pitch black because the moon was not up yet. No street lights here and thank goodness for that.
I saw the heard on the left side of the road but did not see one elk that was about to cross as we were passing by. We were eye to eye… one more step and it would not have ended well for either of us.
With a full moon on the dunes people were hiking all over the place in the night light. Driving around on the way in there was a group of people on the side of the road as we passed by all curled into a ball close to the ground I guess covering their eyes from the car lights. Kinda freaked me out cause I have never seen anything like it.
Wish you were here… but if you can’t be here… a Colorado fine art photography print is the next best thing.
