Desert lines in the dunes of Death Valley National Park make for some compelling scenery to photograph. Dune fields sometimes are difficult to photograph on the first couple of attempts. For starters, there is an overwhelming feeling, so much to photograph in all directions, and what then to shoot? It's also sometimes difficult to find the right perspective in the rapidly changing light of the desert. We made several trips to the dune fields on this workshop and as luck would have it, our final trip was the best!
One of the amazing things about Death Valley is the variety and the vastness of the terrain. You have spectacular dune fields, salt basins, badlands, interesting mud tile areas, and even the famous Racetrack. Hard to beat the variety that Death Valley has to offer.
You never really know if the clouds will show up in the desert and whether or not they will put on a show. Sometimes the conditions work out in unexpected ways. Great though to be out in the early light of sunrise and just take in all the colors and textures of the sky that often get reflected in the white salt basin.
And sometimes conditions really line up to put on a dramatic show of color and light.
Hope you'll join us for some desert drama and adventure. We'll be headed back in January of 2019 so check out the web site gallery for more images and also a tour listing page to reserve your space!
