My first visit to Dunhuang was in August, 2001. It was one of the places I had always dreamed of visiting but never really expected to reach. I traveled with a group of teachers, organized by Primary Source, on a study tour of the Silk Road.

Everyone loves pictures of sand dunes and camels. And I shot a bunch of rolls of both. There are also several shots of the exterior of the Mogao Grottoes, including the famous pagoda over Dunhuang's Big Buddha.

Unfortunately, photography inside the Buddhist cave temples in Dunhuang is not allowed except by special permission. To experience the beauty of the Caves of a Thousand Buddhas, see Dunhuang, Blazing with Faith, a MonkeyTree media site.
