Death Valley, California

Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes, in Death Valley, California. What a wonderful place to visit in the winter. Amazing landscapes everywhare you look. Temperature was in the 60s (15 C). In the summer it gets up to the 130s (54 C). Stayed in Lone Pine and could not get up early enough so when I got to the park it was around 10am, footprints everywhere.


Went by myself, stopped many times, wasn't hurried by anyone, drove down those roads like in the car commercials, had a great time.


Breaking with tradition, this is not an HDR shot. ISO 100, 12mm, f16, 1/125 on tripod. In Photoshop:

- Imagenomic Noiseware on the Landscape setting.

- Curves.

- Slight warming filter except the sky.

- Slight freaky details on the clouds and mud patterns.
