Artist's Description

Death Valley National Park, California, USA

One of my personal favorites. The hardscrabble and Mesquite define this amazing place.

Initially I rejected this image, conventional thinking was that I didn’t capture the pure, abstraction of just “dunes”. After some introspection I started to develop the idea that the “pure & abstract” images were more “universal”. In the end I found that the universal abstractions were less interesting because they could be anywhere on the planet.

What I like about this image is that it embraces what is unique to these dunes in this specific place. At first I thought that the Mesquite and hard scrabble dried mud were annoying distractions; now I see them as an integral part of a “visual story” about this place. Now this is one of my favorite Death Valley images.
