Photo Details

  • Title: Mesquite Flat Dunes
  • State/Province/Region (required): California
  • Country (required): United States
  • Nearest Area: Death Valley National Park
  • Nearest Town: Stovepipe Wells
  • Description: I've always been impressed by others' photos of shadows on sand dunes, so of course I had to take some of my own when I was in Death Valley National Park recently. My wife and I stayed in the park motel at Stovepipe Wells, which is a short drive from Mesquite Flat Dunes. I arrived at the dunes about an hour before sunset and ended up walking about a mile from the parking lot out into the dunes in order to get some of the compositions that I was looking for. There were quire a few people walking among the dunes, so I took advantage of that to compose a few shots with people in them for scale. This was my favorite. I headed back toward my car about 10 minutes before the sun sank behind the mountains and put the dunes in shadow.
  • Notes: ISO 100, f/16, 1/25s
