Sand dunes of Mingsha, Dunhuang, China, at dusk.

Locations: Mingsha, Gansu, China (40°5'18"N 94°40'33"E )
Date: 5 October 2008; 9.20pm
Camera: Canon 400D with Sigma 17-70/f2.8-4.5

Same place, more than 4 years later. This photo was taken on my 3rd visit to Mingsha, the first time in 1999 and the second time in 2004 where I have written a post in this blog before. The place is more developed and touristy now. However it is still a wonderful place to visit especially if one ventures a little further from the dunes near the entrance. There is peace and quiet with nothing else but the sand dunes (and perhaps the heat depending on when and what time of the day one visits).
