Love the first one.
i especially like the last one
It would be nice if I could ever get shots like this out here, but the sky seems determined to remain resolutely sand coloured - makes for a rather dull image to be honest.
Excellent dune photos man! That's one big sandbox.
No it's because the stuff is permanently suspended in the atmosphere. I thin it's mainly down to the stuff the sand is made up of. Don't know much about the geology of the place, but oolitic limestone seems to ring a bell from somewhere. Whatever it is, it is remarkably fine at times, some of it being almost like talcum power. Once the wind gets up, it takes a long time to come back down again and so far this year the wind has been on Viagra by the truckload.
#1 is my favorite, great colors.
Simple desert compositions which would have been very interesting if they were not so flat: I see no shadows, no contrasts, no saturation ... nothing to make them impressive. Well ... first and third are well composed
I would give my left...uh...arm to be able to shoot virgin sand like this some day! Even if I dont get to shoot dunes, I would like to get out to the Nevada desert...maybe on my next visit to Vegas. Would you be willing to hook up and go out shooting if I looked you up? Or are you in CA?
