The dunes migrate, pushed by the wind. Sometimes shifting sands bury trees. As the dunes move on,ghost forests of dead trees are exposed,stark reminders of the dunes' passing.

The time you spent on sharpening these tools ... Splendid job!

Oh my! A sparse forest of lightning rods...
Sand / Salt water killed the trees?
Nice capture - very neat sky. Although the lighting's a little harsh, works well for the scene. Lots and lots of dust bunnies are visible in the sky though - time to clean your sensor :) Also, quite a bit of noise visible in the blue.

Neat photo. Looks like a nomadic tent site...

For me its a little too artificial looking but nicely done nonetheless.

So incredibly strange. I'm not liking the vignetting along the bottom, though. Seems out of place in this stark environment. Or too uneven.

I like it when real life is surreal like this. And I especially like it when someone happens to be nearby with a camera.

Your title really brings it home. I love the clouds - almost like dust devils in the sky. Nicely done. 7
