Colorful Umbrellas in the Desert

The line of white umbrellas leading to the sand carvings in the Resonant Sand Desert, Inner Mongolia in my previous post is surreal.

There were also some colored ones, located here and there in the desert.

I suppose they are more of an artistic installation.DSCF2247

A yellow one almost lost among the similar color sand dune.

Sometimes, you can find them in pairs.CIMG2085

A red one together with a yellow one. Here, you can also find a few tourists wandering around in the desert. This give you some idea as to the scale of the thing.CIMG2072

In the last image, there is a line of umbrellas of different colors.

The color of the sand can become quite mundane, but I like the clouds as well as the colors of the umbrellas!

Umbrellas in the Desert

How to get away from the scorching heat in the desert? We saw this line of umbrellas in Resonant Sand desert, Inner Mongolia, China.DSCF2264 These umbrellas, which provided shades,  lead us to the top of sand dunes where they have sand carvings. The umbrellas offer a spectacular sight, especially in B&W! They make the setting somewhat surreal.
