Crescent Lake. Dunhuang. Photos.

I know this "thumbnail" looks a bit dark. If you right click it (Windows) or Control click (Mac) you should be able to view in full screen. Quite a pretty vista.

A close up, but I think it is better with the jaw dropping background.

I liked this one though it was nearly dark by then.

  4. Amazing photos – amazing place! The dunes are so beautiful aren’t they? Gorgeous contours. Nice bunch of people too. Your climb looks truly epic, reckon you could manage these Yorkshire hills without turning a hair. Was Camel #583 yours? He looks very smug – “Me an’ my Human” lol.

    • It truly was amazing.
      I wonder what sort of view the people in the ultra light and helicopters saw.
      Maybe they would not have had the same problem with the light.
      I found the shadows challenging but the photos seem to have come out alright.

  5. WOW …. a phenomenon indeed.

  6. Great photos Tim!
