I like this picture as much for the photograph itself – very haunting with the sand whipping about and no vegatation in sight – as for the story behind it. This was taken by Dmitry Sumin in Black Rock Desert, Nevada. It is a photo of the tallest, temporary wooden structure in the world. It is part of the Burning Man Festival and will be burned down after one week. What is the Burning Man Festival you ask? I have put a link to Burning Man here so you can find out more about it. I had no clue!
