Growing up in Colorado, I have an appreciation and admiration for natural landscapes. I grew up in Monte Vista, Colo., in the heart of the San Luis Valley which is bordered by the majestic Sangre de Christo mountain range to the east, and the mighty San Juan mountain range to the west. I spent my summers playing in the foothills of the San Juans and exploring Great Sand Dunes National Park & Preserve which lies on the eastern edge of the valley floor. Great Sand Dunes National Park is one of my favorite places to go take photos because the infamous San Luis Valley winds are ever-changing the landscape of the sand dunes. Please enjoy these photos and leave comments on the photos if you have any questions about how I captured the photo or about the photos itself.
