Look Over Your Shoulder - Mesquite Sand Dunes - Death Valley CA
Last months Death Valley trip still has me pumped up and itching to shoot every chance I get. I will get my fix soon as the crew ( JavePhoto Rich Capture Alan ) and I make our way to the pacific north west at the end of the month.
This shot of the dunes is currently at the top of my list of best sunsets even witnessed. To get the best and most clean dunes get there early and trek a mile or so in. Jav and I were set up facing the setting sun. Our comp was ready to go and we just waited. As the sun dipped behind the mountain, the color in the sky swept completely over our heads and in every direction. When I looked over my shoulder and could see the light everywhere, it became a free for all. We ran all over the top of the dunes getting comps in every direction.
This shot is facing the opposite direction of the sun! Check out Jav's shot of the death valley racetrack on the previous night. Enjoy
