Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes

460 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes, Death Valley National Park, California

Death Valley is a very large and diverse desert park in eastern California and one of my favorite locations in the park is the ever changing Mesquite Flat sand dunes. As beautiful as the dunes are they are also incredibly challenging to photograph; with high temperatures, wind blowing fine grain sand and an ever growing number of visitors.
On the morning I made this image the dunes were relatively clean of footprints and it was a race against the rising sun. Its only a little over a half mile walk from the parking area to this location but I had forgotten how slow it is to walk in sand and that I needed to be wary of my own footprints. I didn't want to ruin my own image by having them in the frame.
The beautiful flowing lines of the sand and the soft shadows of the pre-sunrise light create some of the most alluring options to work with, so much so that composing an image can be a real challenge. The shadows were changing so fast that I was afraid that from the first frame to the last that the shadows wouldn't line up. I feel fortunate they did and I'm very happy with the results.

Print only

Our photographic prints are created using a specialty, large-format fine art printer designed to produce archival, museum-grade prints. They are true "chromogenic" prints: light-sensitive paper exposed in a darkroom using state-of-the-art lasers to produce the sharpest possible image. Click on the icons below to learn more or click here to explore further.

Our photographic prints are available in one of two finishes: glossy and lustre. Glossy prints have a rich, silky saturation and are great for environments where the lighting and reflections have been carefully thought through. Lustre prints have a bright, sparkle-like finish that diffuses reflections and are therefore more versatile for environments where the lighting and reflections are less under your control.

Your print comes with two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one that you will affix to the finished piece and one that remains standalone. Additionally, your print's provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital blockchain encryption technology. Learn more.

Acrylic glass display

Our acrylic glass displays are ready-to-hang works of art that contain one of our photographic prints sealed between flame-polished acrylic glass and an aluminum backing. A hidden mounting brace on the rear causes the display to gracefully "float" off the wall for a sleek, modern frameless look that complements nearly any decor style.
