A Look Back—Sand Dunes 2

Photograph of sand dunes at Stovepipe Wells, Death ValleyThere is only a brief window of time, at sunrise, when the low angled light adds shadows to the ripples in the dunes. As soon as the sun has risen much above the horizon, the light becomes harsh and the contrast disappears.  January 16, 2009.

Dune Variations 15

One of my favorite shots from the Mesquite Dunes at Stovepipe Wells, Death Valley. Taken with a 12-24mm wide-angle lens. I’m reminded to use the wide-angle more often. January 16, 2009.

A Look Back—Trona Pinnacles 2

Photograph of the Trona PinnaclesAnother shot I liked from the Trona Pinnacles. The road into the pinnacles is unpaved and rutted so the five mile drive seemed to last forever. I’m sure it isn’t that bad, but I haven’t returned yet.
