Caption: Sand dunes. View of desert sand dunes with narrowleaf cottonwood trees, Populus augustifolia, in the foreground. Dunes are hills of loose sand which form in areas where there is a strong prevailing wind. The movement of grains of sand due to the wind causes the dunes to migrate across land. Sand dunes have a characteristic shape with the side facing the prevailing wind being longer and less steep than the side opposite. Photographed in Great Sand Dunes National Monument, Colorado, USA.
