Stacked one atop another, the dunes calcified in vertical and horizontal layers. While being eroded by wind and water, these layers are the ones that Artwestimage captured on the morning of November 24, 2007. This image, a favorite of mine, was taken in full sunshine, with a Canon EOS using a 33mm lens at f/11, 1/200 second at ISO-100.
