Just along the south Atlantic coast of Gran Canaria from our holiday resort at Taurito are the amazing sand dunes at Maspalomas.
My wife Liz and I spent an afternoon there looking at the shapes and sculpted forms in the sand, and taking a few photos of course!
These wind formed ripples on the side of a dune caught my attention, as repeating patterns can often make a strong composition, and the blue/yellow colour contrast between the sand and sky was also very striking.
