    With Jameel's permission, here is the result of my visit to Coral Pink Sand Dunes, Utah, a place with such a pretty name but difficult for photographers who love dunes. I was trying out my then new Fuji XPro1 and 60mm macro on that trip.

    Sweet capture - a very nice way to handle those dunes. I love the long shadow stretched across the pristine ripples in the sand.

    Great shot. Do you think it's difficult for us because of all the AT vehicles? We drove by there last month and skipped it because of that.

    Very nice Jeffrey. Love the contrast of the sand colors and shapes with the green plant. The long shadow is the icing on the cake.

    Beautiful Jeffrey. I am one of those ATV riders that love Coral Pink, I have been camping & riding there since I was in my 20's so 40 years now. These are not walking sand dunes, if you want no ATV's go somewhere where they are denied on the dunes. Evenwith ATV's as you show you can still find beautiful pictures, but you may have to work for it :)

    This is super cool Jeffrey. I like that solo plant.

    With all of this talk about Pink Sands, I guess I need to try and stop by there on my next trip through which I hope is soon.

    Very nice, Jeffrey -- not the color I expected from the name "Coral Pink".

    If you hit it just right, after a storm & early in the morning before ATV riders get there, you can have it pretty pristine.

    I think that was a marketing scheme.
