Brief Directions

Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes are a short distance east of the town of Stovepipe Wells. It's about a mile hike on a map to reach the highest dune, but if feels a lot longer climbing and crossing ridges of sand the whole way.

Notes

1/160th of a second at f/16, ISO 200. 240mm on a Canon EOS 70D, equivalent to 384mm on a full frame sensor.

Description

The sun was close to dropping below the horizon. The dunes were selectively lit, and nicely sidelit as a hiker waited on top for sunrise. Sometimes a spot you've passed dozens of times suddenly gets really good, with just the right light!
