Guadaloupe-Nipomo Dunes National Wildlife Refuge at sunset. These dunes stretch for 18 miles along the central California shore, from Pismo State Beach to Point Sal. Wind sculpts the sand into peaks that may reach 500 feet high. Cecil B. DeMille chose this dramatic setting for his movie "The Ten Commandments.

A beautiful image. I like the view of the mountains in the distance. I visited Pismo Beach years ago and remember the sand dunes.

@Elaine Hancock: The Guadaloupe dunes are part of the same dune system as Pismo.
