Backyard Scenery – Dunes of Lancelin

by lynngailphotography

 It’s easy to miss scenery in your own ‘backyard’ – Lancelin Sand Dunes lie an hour’s drive north from my home town in Western Australia. I finally made time to visit the 2km long sand dune valley this past weekend. With sand-boarders, four wheel drives and motorbikes screaming over the dunes it was tricky finding a quiet spot – but I spotted a single cloud over some dead shrub……..


And some four wheels drive tracks…….


Another quiet spot ….. and some rolling dunes with a backdrop of blue skies – wonderful!

Some contours and ripples of warm sand – good for the wide angle lens – but not good for changing lenses where there are zillions of tiny particles of sneaky sand searching for a warm sensor!


People!  I always love people in my images; however small and faraway they add a sense of scale that help tell a story.

Just as the sun sets a lone figure appeared on top of a dune! He stood still momentarily – just long enough to photograph him, then walked away. I think I’ll be returning in the not too distant future….
