"Mesquite Sand Dunes" Location: Death Valley National Park, California. I always wanted to photograph the lines and patterns that form in sand dunes. So when I visited Death Valley I liked this spot from where sharp edges were looking well with the smooth undulations of the dunes and leading quite nicely to the mountains behind. Tech Info and Tip: Lens: Canon EF 10-22 f/3.5-f/4.5 @ 17mm Camera: Canon EOS 30D Exposure: 1/gsec at f/22 and ISO 100 Filters: SinghRay 3 stop ND Grad

Death Valley has such unique landscape that defies imagination. A visit here is the closest thing to vising an alien landscape. It is one of the most popular locations to photograph. Its badlands, sand dunes, salt pans, strange racetracks offer unique opportunities to capture its beauty.
