Bandon Dunes is one of those special places, regardless if you love golf or not. Being armed with an iPhone or a camera is like being a kid in the candy store. She’s incredibly photogenic. In certain lights, she’s an absolute dream.

I was lucky enough to spend the day out on the 6th hole in October of 2014. As I climbed one of hillocks between the holes, I discovered an alternative tee with a great view overseeing the Front 9 at Bandon Dunes and parts of Pacific Dunes.

As the clouds broke, I captured this photo on my iPhone. Only recently did I bring it into Snapseed to unlock its full potential.
