This desert-like (or a moon-like) image was taken at the Moving Dunes in the Słowiński National Park in Pomeranian Voivodeship, Northern Poland, situated on the Baltic coast, between Łeba and Rowy resorts. The Northern boundary of the Park consists of 32.5 kilometres (20.2 mi) of coastline. In the past, the park’s area was a Baltic Sea bay. The sea’s activity, however, created sand dunes, which in the course of time separated the bay from the Baltic Sea. As waves and wind carry sand inland, the dunes slowly move, at a speed of 3 to 10 meters per year. Some dunes are quite high - up to 30 meters. Forests in the Park are mainly made of pines. These trees cover 80% of wooded areas; there are also peat bogs of several types. More on this: here .
