Photo of the day: The sand dunes of Mesquite Flats

As the sun came up in Death Valley, the light over the Mesquite Sand Dunes was absolutely gorgeous. I loved the way the side lighting emphasized the wind ripples on the dunes, and how, if you shot from a low angle, the dunes seemed to go on forever. This ones shot with a classic "thirds" composition, with a bit of debris center-foreground and a nice smattering of clouds in the background to attract the eye and pull it deep into the photo, respectively. It all makes, for me anyway, a really nice shot.
