The story behind this image

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!

As the dunes were so expansive and stretched out over a large angle of view I decided to make a panoramic collage using multiple overlapping frames, taking in a series of wind formed ripples that caught my eye.
