Your magnificent dunes of sand looked almost like snow, so it must be fitting to wish you both a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year - including a wish for lots of great photos!

These Dunas de Maapalomas are just great. Probably the most beautiful dunes I have ever seen.

Wow those are amazing photos of sand dunes. I find it difficult to walk on the beach it must be incredibly difficult to walk in these dunes. Happy shooting in 2012 I look forward to another wonderful year following your blog!
