Great Sand Dunes National Park, Colorado
On the frontier of life, where the prairie meets the sand, hardy sunflowers outgrow the shifting sands to bloom and father another generation- proof that life will persist against all odds. Unfortunately, the first response of many viewers is not that of wonder at a unique image, but an assumption that the flowers are planted or digitally superimposed. I fear our culture is losing its sense of natural wonder at time when we need it the most.
