The thing that wasn’t obvious to me the first time I visited Mesquite Dunes in Death Valley is the number of more intimate landscapes one could photograph there. My first trips I focussed entirely on the more sweeping landscapes of the dunes but the interesting textures and shapes of the dried clay beds and scrub makes for all kinds of fun photography. This image was from a trip at the start of the year, will definitely have to find some time to go back.
