One of my most favorite images I have. This is a 4 photo pano of the sand dunes and Mount Seven at sunset on March 3rd, 2007. I hiked almost 3 miles out into the dune field and set up my tripod all over the place until I felt comfortable with the composition. The wind was blowing at about 20 mph which made it difficult to keep the camera still for consecutive shots. If you look close in the bottom left, where the sun is beaming into the image, you'll see the sand blowing across the dune, its the silky effect that makes that portion of the photo sort of cool to look at. After hiking back to my car in the dark, I spent about an hour cleaning the sand from myself and camera. It's amazing where i found sand. That stuff is evil.
The photos were taken from a dune next door to the beautiful Star Dune.
