17 Beautiful Photographs of Sand Dunes

Sand dunes are an almost compulsory subject to shoot when you’re lucky enough to be taking photographs in the desert. The strong lines and shadows also make them a fantastic subject for composing compelling images too. We think this collection of photographs of sand dunes has done well in exactly that.

      That’s my question as well! I had the great opportunity to visit White Sands, New Mexico while in high school and got a grain or two of sand in my lens mechanism on my point and shoot, it didn’t seize up, but the lens never operated smoothly after that. I’d be too afraid to take my DSLR out there now!

    Mine is the 10th image down, the panoramic with the 2 girls (sisters) walking across the sand dunes of Playa De Ingles, taken in Gran Canaria.

    I’m glad you like it. One of the last images taken of the holiday (and best!)

    Number 3 is my photo (click on “more info” below the photo if my link doesn’t work) of the Great Sand Dunes National Park in Colorado. Believe or not, but these dunes are neither close the ocean nor in the desert, but is surrounded by mountains (as can be seen in the background of the photo). It has been viewed by thousands of people and is often linked as a favorite in flickr (www.flickr.com/photos/scfiasco). While I was shooting this photo, I kept cursing the clouds, but once I viewed the finished product, it was actually a “right mistake”. Thank you for posting it along with all these other great photos. Ed Siasoco
