I am self taught and believe that I have a gift and must share it with the world. The interplay of light in nature is one of the earths most wonderful gifts and I try my best to capture that moment in time.

    This is stunning, shooting in sand dunes isn’t easy, and these clouds were perfect for the mood of this image! Great work!

  • Thank you Wayson. Your comments are greatly appreciated. This was at sunset and I really had to crank my ISO up, but I was pleased with the shot. The clouds make this more dramatic.
