nasty dunes!



Just returned from my Cali holiday with little m I will be giving various shout outs with each post. I decided to start with this one because I have not had a chance to edit any shots yet and my travel partners also posted shots from here today so I didn’t want to be left out of the partay.


In Death Valley we had the pleasure to meet up with one of the coolest cats on Flickr dbreeze the rockstar Not only is he a cool cat but he is a fabulous tour guide and motivator. He was able to motivate his friend aaron to leave Vegas at 1am to meet us at the dunes for sunrise, that alone says a lot. Death Valley was an absolute wonder. The temps got up to 119 so that part was not my favorite. But we had a good system down of sleeping during the warmest hours and venturing out at night. To me the dunes are all about textures and lines. It is not hard to get an interesting shot from this place. I found the morning hours to be more colorful and have better shadows. Not to mention it's waaaay cooler :) I will definitely be back for my dbreeze the rockstar round II tour in a cooler season  You can find him in the upper left hand corner of this shot to give the scene a sense of scale. And stay tuned for some additional dune shots soon.


I will be around to visit your streams this week. Can’t wait to check out all your new goods.


Cheers…. Dene’
