These dunes in the Rockaways are made out of sifted sand from the streets following Superstorm Sandy.

Photographer Stephane Missier took these photos in the parking lot of Jacob Riis Park in the Rockaways. The man-made sand dunes, which Missier compares to an “eerie lunar landscape,” are made out of sifted sand from the streets following Superstorm Sandy.

“Polished by the cold winter wind, these artificial cones formed an eerie lunar landscape. The presence of all kinds of construction and hauling trucks on the site as well as conveyor belts, generators, watch towers, and pole lights, gave me the impression of being on another some kind of a spatial station. The wind was pretty strong too and really accentuated that lunar feel.” Missier wrote on his website.
