Thanking you kindly for my first red ribbon and the comments!

This fantastically odd dune is ever-changing and is Europe's largest. You can boogie-board down it as well as 'skateboard' down it (board with no trucks!).
Anyone wanting a wealth of things to shoot would do well to visit Arcachon - it's beautiful. Other shots of this are in my Archachon collection.

Here's the other view:
