The last of the fall colour with a light dusting of snow. This last trees to change before dropping their needles are the tamaracks. These deciduous conifers actually drop their needles every winter after turning beautiful shades of gold. The last sign of fall tucked under the first sign of winter. .

Kentra Bay on the Ardnamurchan peninsula of the Scottish Highlands on Sunday, it’s difficult to walk to this beautiful, secluded beach and when we arrived after a few hours slog it was untouched bar some deer tracks. I defy anyone to say this ain’t heaven on Earth. More pics to follow.

Making the sands sing...
.
We had arrived in the late afternoon at the Western reaches of "Khongoryn Els", the sand dunes that stretch over 180 kilometers in Mongolia's largest National Park, the "Three Beauties of the Gobi". While their Mongolian name translates to "honey colored sands", the dune complex is also known as the "Singing Sands".
.
It was the last day of October and a cold wind was blowing. Walking across the lower sands to the high dunes, we encountered sand drifting above the ground. Starting the climb, we began to hear - from somewhere above and beyond - a roaring more like a freight train, increasing with the speed of the whirling wind and subsiding as sand settled in calmer moments.
.
If it wasn't sand, scaling the steep face of the high dune would be more daunting. In snow and ice it might be a technical climb with ice axe and crampons. And the higher we reached, the steeper and loser was the sand, and the blasting of sand and cold air grew stronger. Definitely not in record time, but we finally reached the sharp edge of the top. A fine, elegant line shaped by the winds.
.
It was just in time to catch the sun set behind the expanses of sand dunes. The last light of the autumn day bathing the sand slopes in warm colors and bringing out the contrasts of this spectacular landscape. A relief to walk on firm sand here, beyond the sharp edge, on the gentle slopes to the South. We walked a bit along the ridge line, enjoying the calm, the view and the last sun.
.
The greatest moment however, was yet to come. When we stepped over the fine edge again to begin the descent, it was like we woke a giant. With our stepping onto the steep slope, avalanches began to slide, like tongues of sand, and the sands began to sing! We were immersed in their vibrations. Walking in switchbacks down the sand face, our feet engulfed by downward running sand, surrounded by the humming sound, it felt like we were with a living being.
.
And of course we were - it just takes special moments like that to make us feel the living earth we belong to.
