The Color of Thunder by michaelanderson The Color of Thunder by michaelanderson
The dunes of Lencois Maranhenses are like nature's canvas- the golden white sands reflect the full spectrum of sunset colors into the watery atmosphere, intensifying and bathing the scene in dazzling light like nowhere else I've ever seen. There are a few rare places on earth that have just the right atmospheric conditions to create extraordinary light; Patagonia, the high altitude Himalaya, the white granite walls of Yosemite- but this little known corner of the world, empty and quiet, just might have the best atmospheric conditions of them all.

I have just started watching your work, which is both extraordinary and exemplary - but sadly I cannot view the images as yet - it may be that it is the fault of my server, who don't always have their act together...I hope to check it all out soon however!

Emptiness is part of its "atmosphere," too. I think that adds to the beauty of this place. Nice title, too.
God is a wonderful painter, and I'm grateful for people with your talent who can bring these images home to people like me who may never see them. Congrats on the DD. :)
