p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Sandy Neck Golden Dunes


Sunset in the dunes of Sandy Neck on Cape Cod. I have been meaning to get out to this place for several months and decided yesterday was the day. Sandy neck is a 7 mile peninsula with no real roads, so getting out into the dunes means 4 wheel drive or hiking through sand, I drive a Monte Carlo so it was on foot for me. The sky didn't offer much interest but the golden light on the dunes was spectacular. I'd like to camp out here in the future to explore more of the area, the trees and plants I saw while hiking were some of the most interesting I've ever seen.



Thanks for looking!

This is just beautiful. Love the zigzag lines of the dunes and the wonderful light on the grass.

Ben, as an Oregonian this reminds me of our own coastal scenery. I like that you cropped the harsh sky to a minimum, and the zig-zag line of the grass in the evening light makes the shot. One small thought from here—try a 5% dodge along that line of grass and see if it doesn't pop out a bit more. (Not too much, and it's nice as-is.) Good luck on future visits there, you've got a lovely playground.

Thanks for the feedback guys. Blueshadows, Funny you mention that, as soon as I was done playing with it I considered going back in to dodge the lit grass, maybe I will have to do that now.

Hi Ben, that light on the grass looks like thin yellow flames, really like that contrast with the white of the sand. The composition of mostly horizontal lines of yellow and white and green is very nice.
