Mesquite Sunrise I
Description
The day before I took this shot of Death Valley's Mesquite Dunes there was a raging sand storm with wind gust up to 70 mph that lasted into the night. The next morning it was still very windy so I decided to head up the west side of the dunes to be upwind, and also so I could catch the blowing sand in the light coming from the east. It's a kind of weird comp but does convey the conditions fairly well.

Mesquite Sunrise III
Description
Another favorite shot from Death Valley's Mesquite Dunes after a sand storm hit. That's another photographer who slowly made his way toward to tallest dune from the east (I was on the western side). I was taking shots of him the whole way in order to show scale and knew exactly where he was headed. There were at least two others headed the same way but this guy was making good time - probably because he hardly had any gear. Anyway, I have no idea who this was but I appreciate the fact that he was there.

Description
Another shot from San Jacinto Wildlife Area. I saw this dry creek bed and thought it would make a nice lead-in. The new grass (or whatever it is) also looked great. So I started shooting this in overcast light but the sun peeked in below the clouds and showered this area with this awesome light.

Crops in the Wind
Description
I saw this scene while stopped at a stop light in Lakeview, CA so I pulled over and took a couple shots. It was extremely windy so there was no way to avoid the motion blur other than bump the ISO setting. But the exposure was still way too long. Even so, I like this shot so I'm just going to pretend that it was intentional and my artistic vision all along.
