Lone in Dune - Sand Dunes, Stovepipe Wells, Death Valley National Park

    Newer Older

    Woke up in morning at 5:30am to shoot sand dunes, I have say I am little bit late to capture sunrise light. I met this women while walking in the dunes and she was upset that her alarm didn't work and was in rush to this place.

    We both split up in two diff directions; I went to one of tallest dune to catch patterns of dunes. With bare eyes I wasn't sure what to shoot, and then started looking through my 100-400mm in search for subject. Here you are witnessing one of them.

    Editors pick of online display in National Geographic International Contest 2009, displayed under August Week 3 2009.
