painting with sand and sky

peaceful moment just after dawn among the sand dunes in Death Valley.

Camera Info:

 

Camera: Nikon D700

Lens: Nikon 70-300mm f/5.6

Focal Length: 180mm

Aperture: f/18

ISO: 200

i used a 3-step ND grad filter, along with a polarizing filter to cut the reflection coming off the sand and deepen the sky.

 

Post Processing:

minimal post-processing in Lightroom - a bit of contrast and I warmed up the image a bit.
