My sincere condolences, James.
I guess the wind did his work here, producing the 'stars'.
I do like the light play in your well composed work.

My well-meant condolences to you and your family.
Excellent photo in very beautiful saturated colours. Fantastic composition.
In my archive I got a few photos from the same dunes, taken from a little airoplane. But that are scanned slides, not the quality of this one. But maybe some day....
All the best,

Hello James, my sympathy to you for this unexpected departure of your mother. And this is a beautiful picture of those stunning dunes, the colour is fantastic. Maybe you make pictures without people or yourself, but at the same time, it is you ;-) I wish you well,

It is nice to have you back. I'm sure the eulogy was a more effective dedication than a photo. How special of you to do it; and I'm sure it was greatly appreciated.
I love the sharp lines along the crests of these star dunes. What a fascinating area and the color is so rich and unusual... at least to me.

bellissimo paesaggio, eccellenti POV e composizione con scelta della luce laterale radente che crea bellissime linee d'ombra e aumenta l'effetto grafico di queste splendide dune, ottima la definizione, bellissimi i colori ricchi di sfumature.

My sympathies to you. You are a product of a good loving family maternally and even if she didn't appreciate photos...we know you and she survived a common bond as only mother and son can do.....Take solace....in photography...let your light shine through!
Aha...Dunes...without plural also an interesting movie....I remember back when Anwar Sadat crashed in this desert in a helicopter and he was the only survivor...I can't imagine but I can see....The colours are amazing...That my friend is a true wilderness..

Sad to hear that of your mother. Although not liking photography so much she must have been very proud you I'm sure: you're knowledge of the world is very wide and sophisticated as shown here with this subject too.
As for the picture, the perspective brings out the essence of the subject, showing it in a beautiful way. TFS
All my best wishes for these hard times!

I am sorry for your lose my friend, may peace be with you. Your image here is magnificent once one reads your notes and realizes just how big these are, and how they are formed. The scene is one of emptiness in a way with the news of your Moms passing.

I'm really sorry for your loss :( My sincere condolences.
My mother (and she's not the only one, actually) is always asking me the same question, too :)...so i understand why you didn't dedicate this to yours.
In many popular believes around the world, it is thought that when somebody dies, their spirit goes up in the sky and a new star is shines for them. I don't know if you thought about things like this when you chose this photo and even if it's not a star up in the sky, the idea i think its very nice.
Beyond that, this is a very beautiful shot from you again.
The shape of these dunes is amazing and the photo does well to show the perpendicular lines of each of the 4 sides of the "star". Excellent educational note to go with it, again, my friend!
Bravo, TFS and once more, my condolences.

The diversity of shots in your gallery such as this one is astonishing.
You could release a photo CD of world shots all on your own.
The colours are wonderful,with lovely lighting.

A beautiful shot of a spectacular landscape. The colors of the dunes together with their unusual shape make for a stunning photograph. Really very nicely done.
