I photographed this scene on my fall 2015 visit to Zion National Park. While wandering a wash, I found an area of fresh sand ripples from the last rain storm. The sand was not fully saturated, nor was it completely dry. It was in a partially dried state that gave it great form and contrast.
I placed a red maple leaf to help anchor the scene, and give a sense of scale. This scene is lit by beautiful reflected light from a nearby sandstone slope.
