A few weeks ago, David, Liisa, Gurbir, Brian, and I drove out to the Mojave Desert in search of lava tubes left from extinct volcanoes. We took a detour to climb some enormous sand dunes, almost becoming sick with heat exhaustion along the way.


Flickr makes this look pretty awful, honestly. There's uncontrollable banding and grossness going on that I can't seem to do anything about.

    i love the lighting in this. I wish the opening was edited out, it takes too much of my focus.

    This is very cool.

    How did you find lava tubes? I know, I love sand dunes too, but play in them far too long. Try Death Valley sometime and Rhyolite nearby - wait until it cools off some though.

    I always find it so difficult to comment on your creations, even though I find reassurance in them in the most unique way. They are incredible in a multitude of ways, and even this one speaks levels to me. Even if it is simple at the seam, there is so much more.
