Awake From Dreaming

Early morning on the Great Sand Dunes after a stormy night brings clouds that reflect intense colors from the rising sun. I had envisaged a photograph like this at the sand dunes for over a year, capturing the the texture of the dunes, the sweeping lines that lead to the Sangre de Cristo mountains, with a brillant sunrise.
