Mesquite Dunes, Death Valley, California, USA by Phillip Rubaloff

Picture Story

The light on the sand dunes here in Death Valley is most striking in early morning or late afternoon when the shadows are the most pronounced. In this photo I chose to concentrate on the horizontal angle of the dunes in the early morning with the light hitting just the tops leaving andthe rest in shadow. The patterns in the sand will change depending on the wind. Shooting in a strong here can pit your lenses as well as disable you cameras workings. December has been my usual time of photographing this area although after a wet winter the spring time can offer great opportunities with the wild flower blooms.
