Photo Of The Day – The Smoothness of the Desert

Title: The Smoothness of the Desert

Location: Algodones Dunes, California, USA, North America

Description: This time of year I can imagine these pristine appearing dunes to be covered with ATVs and all kinds of tracks. And that’s okay with me. I realize some of our lands need to be multipurpose and there are times for each activity. I am thankful that during the summer, those ATVs stay away from the intense heat of the desert and allow photographers a chance to explore the seemingly untouched wilderness. Sure, this picture is taken from the road (I can’t remember if I even got out of my air conditioned car). I find that heartening that anyone can visit the dunes and appreciate their beauty. I also think it would be fun to blast over the top of the crests on a quad.
