"Sensational Sands"

no. 20070106_070

Death Valley NP, CA

Sand by it's very nature seems to aggregate in remarkably sensational, perhaps even erotic, forms. The delicately curved mounds are constantly shifting under the persistant winds, forming large scale forms as well as delicate rippling textures. Wandering the dunes in the early morning light after a desert storm has wiped away all the foot prints is a surreal experience that I highly recommend you treat yourself to one day. These dunes were photographed as two separate images in Death Valley National Park's Mesquite Dunes after sunrise.
