Colorado's Most Famous Sand Box . . .
This is one of my favorite places to hang out. If you don't come along . . .I am still going!!! We'll shoot a couple of sunrises and a couple of sunsets, depending on the weather, and a lot of big piles of sand in between!! We'll also spend a late night shooting the stars if you wish to do that.

The Sand Dunes are nestled at the foot of the Sangre de Cristo mountain range where 5 of Colorado's Fourteeners reside. The views are amazing and priceless to photograph. Did you know that Star Dune is the highest sand dune in North America. It's over 600 feet high! You can climb to the top if you are so inclined! It's quite the view . . . and a heck of a workout climbing up.

All skill levels are encouraged to come and play in this atmosphere beyond words. The sand dunes take on so many different faces depending on time of day and the light. We will try to capture many of those different looks of the dunes.

  • Image pre-visualization

  • Composition

  • Exposure

  • Depth of field

  • Lens selection

  • Image prep in Lightroom

  • Image enhancement in Photoshop

  • and so much more . . .
