Entry Description

"The Dunes, The Sun and The Wind Lover" embraces a moment of deafening silence, amidst a howling wind and frigid temperatures. With frozen fingertips, and sand belting all around me, I found myself plopped down onto the sand, and smiling, at the peace and obvious contentment of this mesmerizing wind lover.

About Photographer

In the last few years, Doris and her Nikon D810 have been travelling the wilds solo; sidestepping up the tallest dunes in North America, hiking 211 miles with a final step atop the tallest peak in the lower 48, hiking every marked and unmarked trail around a live volcano, climbing over fallen trees through ethereal gorges, and rolling out of her truck at four in the morning, in icy temperatures, to hike to the top of a lookout for that breathtaking sunrise. Life took a dramatic twist in 2014, and is now empowering Doris to pursue full-tilt - life as a Professional Landscape Photographer.
