Te Paki Sand Dunes, Northland, New Zealand

24 Dec
We’d planned to hire boards from the camp ground near Te Paki and surf the sand dunes. In reality the camp ground was for sale and abandoned, and an open shed door gave me the horror movie creeps.
So the giant sand dunes  (sea nowhere to be seen) were experienced in the form of crazy jumps, slides and flips rather than sand surfing.

Wonderful shot! :)

Nag’s Head, North Carolina

14 Oct


These portraits are the opposite of “serious.” They were intentionally silly. Each person was given a pose by another person. So, for example, Linwood gave Caroline a pose, and Jack gave Aad a pose, and Breanna gave Jack one, etc. We had a lot of fun with it.

Port Stephens, Australia

31 Jan

After Newcastle came Port Stephens and the Worrimi Conservation Lands to see the Sahara like sand dunes and then do some sand boarding. So after a couple hours of driving and perhaps getting lost one or two times, we arrived at the conservation lands. Coming up to the conservation lands was a surprising experience as once you drive through the forest, these massive and multiple sand dunes seem to pop up out of nowhere. We decided to sandboard which was a cool experience, but definitely exhausting as we had to hike up the dunes.

Uluru, Australia

In the red, red dust at Uluru. Even long after sunset the sand on the dune was soothingly warm.

Huacachina, Peru

17 Aug

niven photography writes, “Huacachina – 2 days

Trip there…..

We took a cheap night bus from Huaraz to Lima. I picked the front two seats; bad mistake. The whole night the bus driver and his aid played loud music despite the angry and polite protests of many passengers. So not much sleep was had on the 9 hour bus ride.

Upon arriving to a dull, grey and smelly Lima at 5am we decided to bypass the sprawling metropolis of 7.6 million people and head to the desert oasis of Huacachina. Jumped on a 4 hour bus to Ica at 7.30am. Ica is about a 10 min drive from Huacachina so we jumped in an old guy’s taxi. The taxi has to be, by far, the worst car I have ever had the pleasure of travelling in. No wing mirrors, suspension or door panelling, almost every panel dented, half the dash missing but the temperature gauge did seem to function OK.

Huacachina is an old Peruvian elite retreat built around a stunning oasis surrounded by massive rolling sand dunes which is now a Gringo (Spanish for tourist) hangout.

We spent the next two days relaxing by the water, sand boarding and dune buggying. Both had a great time but could have taken just one full day here.

Sand boarding was incredibly fast and fun but hitting buggy ruts at the bottom at full speed are a killer. Tip, wear shoes so you can brake with your feet as the sand is like sand paper at those speeds with bare feet.”

Cancun, Mexico

21 Jun

Larry’s blog writes, “Everyone should get buried in the sand at least once in their life.  Remember how many days later you were still digging ultra-fine sand particles out of your ears … and other crevices?

At the other end of this photo is the head of an eleven year old boy who was buried by his uncle and cousins.   When he tried to get out, the first thing to appear were his toes.  They had so much fun that eventually ten other kids, even one in diapers, were buried.

Put it on your bucket list.”
