Photographer's Note

This photo was taken in the middle of a sandstorm in Death Valley National Park. The wind was blowing hard (30-40 mph) and it was a challenge to protect the camera from the “stinging” sand. The glow in the distance is created by the setting sun through a crescent shaped crack in the clouds behind me.

I had to wait about 45 minutes for the light conditions to be just right. I huddled behind some bushes trying to shield myself from the "stinging" sand. When I saw the sunlight poring through clouds, I ran up on the crest of the dune with my tripod and a camera. Needless to say that I was perhaps the only one standing on a crest of one of the tallest dunes in middle of a sandstorm (there was one other car parked on road beside mine).

I would do it all over again if I had to...:-))
