Picture Story

I always wanted to see and photograph the dunes in Death Valley and there I was, on a hot dawn. It was august 18th 2010, not the best period of the year to visit but there I was. I got up early to be there at 5.30am, after a short drive and walk from Stovepipe Wells. I noticed the curve of the dune, reminding me of a half moon and moved around to have a good frame, with the light coming from the side and so highlighting the textures of the ripples of the sand. Technically, it was not a difficult shot, even though I was using a tripod, as usual, it was emotionally, being there alone, not even feeling the hot air and the sweat that was soaking my shirt. I made a few frames and this is the one I like more, the half dune at dawn.
