I was marveling at brilliant colors the morning sun was painting on one side of the road. Then I looked ahead to the other side of the road where light was falling more gently through a haze of desert dust. Here the sun created a pastel canvas of two vibrant layers of dunes, one of brown sand, the other of red, poised below a lavender tinted sky.
