This was taken in Sand Dunes National Park, in Colorado. To get this, set up camp in the dunefield and got up shortly before sunrise. My tent was actually immediately out of frame, bottom left. You can see a bit of the lingering frost on the dune, at the top right. Thanks for the comments, it was a remarkable trip.

Awesome. Went through the outtakes. You picked the right one. Would have been nice a bit more contrast / color on the sky but you know better (or maybe my monitor...)

Awesome!

The camp was worth it! Brilliant shot, is it HDR? If it is it's very well done.

For all the calmness and beauty of this shot, the danger is imminent. Beautiful shot.

Oooh, serious landscape eye candy. Great composition and exposure, there's sunlight, shade, shape, form, mountains, snow, desert, cloud and a blanket. A noteworthy 10.
