  1. Oh my, the memories this photo brings to me! This was my playground all during childhood. I loved rolling down the white sand dunes. My relatives in Illinois could not even imagine what ‘white sand’ looked like! THANK YOU for posting this photo!

  2. Absolutely stunning! Was photoshop used at all to produce these colors? If not, I’m even more impressed.

    1. No idea, Jake — I’d suspect there’s a filter involved, but I’d email the photographer through his Flickr page to get the real story. Thanks for commenting!

  3. wow
