Art of nature
Nature creates beautiful sculptures and pictures - just get up in the morning and enjoy the views - I recommend watching the dunes of Maspalomas especially at sunrise - the direction of the light is perfect.
The sand on the dunes, like the beach or snow, cheat light meter in the camera and to properly illuminate the photograph must be overexposed.
