A beetle negotiates a sea of sand dunes out by the dry Fossil Lake, near Fort Rock and the town of Christmas Valley, OR.

I enjoy discovering images that blend abstract and realistic elements. In this shot I like how the beetle provides a nice counterpoint to the designs made by the lighting on the dune contours. The sand itself offers both textured detail and soft light patterns.
