Afternoon Manna

After two hours of hiking around the dunes and over 85 different compositions, this is my favorite image from Ibex Dunes in Death Valley National Park. Here's what amazes me about this photograph, it's the first shot I took of Ibex Dunes. Due to the dunes' remote location, I was fortunate to discover the dunes unmarred by other visitors' footprints. And yes, I visit other national parks during my vacations. There will be more Death Valley posts to come. To learn how to create images like this, consider taking one of my nature photography workshops in Acadia National Park.
