Not Cory but the location is right. I was lucky enough to visit White Sands in June - a beautiful sunset (here) and equally lovely sunrise (or just after - they wouldn't let us on the park for sunrise so we had to be content with a lovely morning LOL).
Thank you all for the wonderful comments and votes. I'm so glad you enjoyed the colors as much as I do.

No possible criticism for this. My mind feels joy in viewing, as if stumbling upon an old familiar children's book cover from my youth. Congrats.

The blues and golds give this an ethereal otherworldly beauty. Love how you included people in the frame for it gives the sense of scale how small is Man in the grand scheme of nature. Congrats on winning the blue Nikki!!!

The tones of blue are wonderful, and the people provide some scale. I think they really take the scene to another level.

Just based on location, this is likely a Cory production. Glorius colors and shapes.

Beautiful scene and light.

I am enjoying the shades of blue and rhythm of shapes in an image that evokes calm feelings. The foreground, initially seeming to be a dull candidate for cropping, plays on second look an interesting role with a subtle texture-like pattern involving darker and lighter blue that provides an intersting balance to the larger scale shapes.

Great image. Soothing, waves of blue after blue, depth and a great complimentary contrasting sky. A story. Very well framed as well. Nicely done.

This is a beautiful example of the art of tone and colour. Addition/inclusion of the human element adds an emotion, a warmth. Well done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Beautiful layers, beautiful colours. The presence of the two tiny figures, giving both scale and a point of interest, just makes this scene all the more fabulous. Top 3.
