This was such a surreal experience back on March 29th, 2020. I hiked about a mile out into the dunes and was having a blast shooting the beautiful light on the dunes. There was a point when I was shooting low and surrounded by a tall sand dunes and couldn't see what coming my way in the distance. Once I popped back out to get a higher vantage point and shoot the sunset, I quickly realized something magical was taking place. Storm clouds were rolling in right at sunset and lit up these 2 open sections in the clouds that looked like eyes staring at me. I initially thought it was rain falling because it wasn't windy at all and boy was I wrong. I had about a 45 minute slow hike back through the sand and was hoping I could make it in time before getting drenched but that wasn't rain at all. That was a wall of sand barreling right for me! I could see it getting closer and closer so I stopped to seal up my bag the best I could and braced for impact. I wasn't wearing any protection for my face like glasses, and a face gaiter like I normally would on windy days. Instead I was in shorts, flip flops, and otherwise completely exposed and got pelted by sand as strong winds made it almost black out conditions walking back. I only had about 50 feet of visibility as the sand and wind wailed around me and didn't even know if I was going in the right direction back to the road. Eventually I made it back and sat in my truck going through the events in my head so that I would never forget it. Those are the days I live for!
