I spent a few days in Death Valley National Park in mid-January. I saw a high wind forecast and jumped at the chance to be on the dunes. Unfortunately the wind was minimal. But I ran into a friend on the dunes and adjusted my plans. He suggested some places that I hadn’t been before.
It usually takes a few visits to a place to get a sense of the landscape and how the light reacts. This was taken on my first visit to the location of the dunes pictured below. The sun had already set on the dunes where I was standing, but cast its last rays on the distant dunes. I had to react quickly.
Well, not all dunes. One morning I drove to this sunrise viewpoint.
