Olancha Sand Dunes off of HWY 395 in California.
This was taken just before a snow storm hit the Sierras and just minutes before 30 mph winds moved in creating more photo opportunities at the sand dunes themselves.
The Joshua Trees are taken at Olancha Sand Dunes in the late afternoon. What caught my attention was this massive white cloud, I was oblivious to the storm cloud over the mountains to our right. But once I got in position, I then noticed that storm front to our right and the great contrast that it gave.
