As I was composing an image of the dunes and mountains, a lone head popped up in the distance; he was finished with his photography for the day, and must have started his journey out to the edges of the dune field when it was still dark.

I love the contrast of soft beige against the jagged mountain peaks here. From this perspective it looks like the dunes are limited to a small area, but it would take you many hours to trudge from one side to the other.
