sandbox sunset by kopfwiesieb sandbox sunset by kopfwiesieb
This photo was taken at the Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes in the Death Valley National Park - a great sandbox for all the tourists coming here. Nevertheless, at the end of the day, all that's left of them are their footprints in the sand.

So I enjoyed the wonderful colors of the sunset on my own :dance:.
By the way, all you can hear in a sand desert is your own breath and the pulse in your ear - very interesting effect ...

I really like the different colors of the dunes in the foreground, the blue mountains in the middle and the glowing sky, which somehow matches the color of the sand in the foreground again.

I added a software gradient filter to enhance the structures in the sky during post-processing.

Please fell free to evaluate all details and the quality in the full resolution image, 5184 x 3456 pixels, available for download.
Comments and critique is very welcome!

Ich hoffe doch auf ein paar schöne Sonnenuntergänge, jetzt im Frühjahr ist ja wieder Saison.
Und in ein paar Jahren hat uns der Klimawandel vielleicht auch ein wenig Wüste beschert ... wer weiß :devilish:

JahrZEHNTE bis sich der Klimawandel im Großen bemerkbar macht, Grönlandeis bei knapp 2,3°C mehr Durchschnittstemperatur wegschmilzt, Hamburg und Paris überflutet werden. An Wüste ist da weniger zu denken :D Sonnenuntergänge sind dagegen ein Klacks, aber momentan greifbarer :peace:

Na schön, dann halt nicht ... war eh nicht ganz ernst gemeint :B
(Aber Sonnenuntergänge gibt's dann nicht mehr, da es ja ständig bewölkt sein wird, oder?)

Vor lauter Regen werden wir wie Majestix aus Asterix und Obelix herumrennen und schreien: "Hilfe! Hilfe! Der Himmel fällt uns auf den Kopf" Ob wir dann noch genügend Sonnenuntergänge miterleben dürfen, ist jedem selbst überlassen :D

Thank you for your comment. Yes, it's really hard to imagine that this is real - I was really lucky to be there at the right time :D
