  1. Wow, great sand landscape. I’ve always wanted to run up and down on sand dunes, feeling the heat of the sands on my feet. Thanks for sharing. Connie

      Thanks Connie! Actually there was a guy there doing just that, running up and down the dunes. I can’t imagine how much his quads must have hated him!

  9. What beautiful photos – I especially like the brilliant light coming through the clearing in the sky. The reflection looks like fiery amber in a watery midst. Thanks for sharing.

    November 21, 2011

      You definitely can! If you look closely at the 2nd and 4th photos you’ll see guys sand boarding. You can rent boards right there at the base of the dunes.

  32. what camera do you use?

    November 22, 2011
    • Sophie #

      My boyfriend is the photographer, he uses a canon powershot S95. He prefers more somber scenes but occasionally he’ll indulge me in taking pretty landscape shots too!

      November 22, 2011
  33. Amazing scenery!

  36. These images are awesome, great viewpoints.

    November 22, 2011
  37. Great photos! One of my favorite memories is a wild and crazy dune buggy ride up and down 300 foot sand dunes in Florence, Oregon. I was totally jazzed for the rest of the day!

    November 22, 2011
    • Sophie #

      Jazzed! I love that expression. I wasn’t so much jazzed as awestruck though. I’ve been on sand dunes in Morocco where that’s all you can see is a monotonous panorama of rolling sand, but here with the ocean on one side and the lagoon on the other and mountains in between…it was like sensory overload!

      November 23, 2011
  38. Amazingly beautiful nature, nice shots 😀

    November 22, 2011
  39. The photos are breathtaking. Nothing like Mother Nature to bring out the artist in a person, whether with a camera, a paintbrush, or other media. The colors and textures just never cease.

    November 22, 2011
  40. very soothing pics…

    Great post. I like shots. Thanks for post.

    November 22, 2011
  42. Where i live you can’t run on the sand dunes anymore, because they’ll erode into the ocean. but they’re fun to run down 🙂 Nice photos.

      It’s a strange feeling sinking into deep sand with each step as you let your free fall down the side of a dune. You feel so light!

      November 23, 2011
  43. Fantastic shots–the first one is my fav. Sunsets never get old.

    November 22, 2011

  59. Aww I love sunsets on the beach, especially white-sand beaches!

    My favorite is the 4th picture–got the mountains, seas, and white sand….what more could you ask for? So much depth in one picture–a very dynamic picture:)

      Hey thanks Corey! I’ve enjoyed browsing your blog this morning. Makes me miss being an expat in Paris. You have such a talent for summing up what it feels like to see Paris with the freshness that only a foreigner can bring to a new city.

    Jeez. I love these. Especially the very first photo. Which effect on the camera did you use (or perhaps Photoshop)? It’s pretty amazing.

    Congratulations on getting on Freshly Pressed as well. You do deserve it, with those images! Great post.

      Thanks for your comment. I asked my boyfriend what he did when he took the photo: “nothing special, normal camera settings”. Then what I did when I got the photo onto iPhoto was click “enhance”, which sharpened the image a bit. Probably not the expert answer you were looking for but that’s it! Truly, it was just good luck to be there at that exact moment when the sunset was breaking through the clouds and warming up the colors of the sand. Just breathtaking.

      November 23, 2011
  65. Gorgeous!
