Early Morning, Mesquite Flat Dunes, Death Valley

Strong, early morning sunlight on sand dunes is great, but so is soft, overcast light. I have more to say about it over on my WordPress site.

I can really see where this had to be a marvelous morning for all kinds of light - both deflected AND directed...The sky does look wonderful and I can envision the low angled sunrise splitting between the cloudcover near the horizin The resultant colour casts throwing pinks and blues and grays all around - with the light coloured sand here at Mesquite Flats, the reflection is just phenomenal. You have conveyed all of this so very beautifully, Gary, as you always do :-) Tonight I will pop over to your WordPress blog and read more...Here at work, the gestapo prevents me....If they ECVER find out that this is a blog too, I'm sunk!! Cheers Gary -best wishes.

Thanks for the memories, Gary. There is nothing like spending time in Death Valley to comprehend the beauty of the area. We were there for a week in 2000 and celebrated the 49er's week. 'High Chaparral' sang and we were forever won over.

Oh wow! This is so gorgeous! I am a sucker for sand dunes, and this one is lovely with the juxtaposition of the sharp and spiky mountains in the background...
