Return to Death Valley

There are at least 7 sand dune complexes in the Death Valley area, and only the Mesquite Flat dunes at Stovepipe Wells is overrun with photographers and other visitors. Ironically, the dunes at Stovepipe Wells are also probably the smallest (only about 200 feet tall) and take the most effort to reach (a 2 mile walk over sand, probably with high heat to cope with on at least one direction).

I have a new favorite dune shooting location... it's remote and it takes a bit of a walk, but there wasn't a single footprint on this entire dune complex. I won't broadcast the location on the Internet, but join one of my workshops to the area and I'll take you there!
