Hampered by the light

The play of light on the sand dunes as I drove through them the other day got me thinking about pointing a camera at them. Only thing was when I got there the sun went into hiding. Given the uniformity of colour and tone of marram grass and sand in the soft light there wasn't much in the way of the contrast to give shape to things. Even the clouds failed to make themselves moody and magnificent.

Undeterred I battled manfully and think I managed to find something moderately worthwhile.

Of course, the moment I returned to the car the clouds moved on and the shadows returned - although I rather overcooked the use of the wide angle lens in my enthusiasm.
