The Dunes

The Dunes, oil on card, 13.2 x 10.1 cm

I'm not sure if I've entirely captured the strange beauty of the dunes: I'm going to come back here for sure: they are behind Avenida Rendeiras, in Lagoa.

The sand is incredibly white, and then the sun beats on it and it makes your eyes sore to see it. The vegetation here is peculiar, sparse, like the nair on a balding man, and the land rises and falls in irregular clumps, with some swampy areas. Birds, often lapwings, fly about cawing.
