For a series I have in mind, with...turning windblown snow dunes into desert scenes within LR, as in this Photoshop version

Well, we certainly have plenty snow in UK at present. Could save on the aeroplane fare to Namibia.

Noo, I want to know how to do it in LR and not in PS as I have.       ;)

Try the split toning function in LR. That may get you quite close - maybe a hue in the 45-50 range. Also/or some adjustment in the blue curve (select point curve>blue channel in the Tone Curve function). Once the tone looks right you can finish off with contrast, global curve, highlight, shadow, whitepoint, blackpoint to get the distribution right. Could even add some grain to finish off. Good luck and have fun!

One thing that I've noticed is that when I severely alter colors in LR...they tend to pixelate more than if I would alter the color alterations in PS.
