Dunes and Clouds, Death Valley. Black and white photograph

Dunes and Clouds, 1994. Death Valley National Park, California


This image was shot in the early morning amidst Death Valley's photogenic sand dunes. I was struck by the symmetry of the forms and the contrary patterns of the sand ripples and the horizontal clouds. Even the upswept peaks of the dunes seemed to echo the graceful pointed clouds. The film was Kodak T-Max 100 developed Normal + 1 in T-Max RS developer. I used a yellow filter to help preserve the separation between the clouds and the sky. The top half of the print is burned substantially. Immediately after exposure of the negative, an intense sandstorm developed, making it quite a chore to pack the camera  into my backpack and return to the car.  The sandstorm grew in severity and lasted for an entire day.
