June of 2010

Please describe how you got this photo.
This image was one of the first digital images I took; before this, all my images were black and white film-based. I was watching the weather that morning on the sand dues of Death Valley and hoping for a break in weather, when I noticed an opportunity to capture some incredible clouds along with allot of wind. I went looking for the right composition when I found this one.

{loadposition inpage} Did you use any special techniques?
I used a tripod and a polarizer. The conversion to B&W was done with Nik Silver Effects Pro.
