Dune not disturb

I love a decent abstract as much as the next photographer, so I found this simple sight really arresting. Why? Simply because of the strong shapes and the bold colours - and I guess the unusual view as well.

This was a temporary outdoor stall at Melbourne's Docklands precinct, shot on a very warm summer's day on 10 January this year. The central pole swept the canvas upwards sharply, which was perfect for the way I "saw" the image, contrasting that bright yellow against the strong shadow and the flawless blue Australian sky.

That is indeed a flawless blue sky. The photo looks like an abstract painting. Great colors.

At first I thought, sand dunes. Mark Rothko eat your heart out.

For a second there, I found myself back in Egypt among the sand dunes enroute to Sharm El Sheikh.
