Sunset at the Great Sand Dunes NP

Sunset at the Great Sand Dunes NP

One of the most magical places I have ever been is the Great Sand Dunes NP.  Inhabited by man since paleolithic times, it imparts something to me, “A Thin Place”.  A thin place is defined by the ancient Celtic Christians as a place where the physical world and spiritual world come together and one experiences something you hear as “the hair stood up on the back of my neck”.  This place and Stonehenge have done that to me.  This sunset was enhanced by the summer forest fires in the area and gave the atmosphere its beautiful color.  This image of Great Sand Dunes NP is available as a fine art print.
