Here’s another new image – a telephoto view of Mount Whitney, California during a stormy sunrise. Whitney is the tallest peak in the lower 48 states, at 14,505 feet.

Nocturne of Shadow by alexnoriega

Twilight falls on the curvaceous sand dunes of Death Valley, California.

I’ve been wanting to get back here to make images like this since my last (completely unproductive) visit three or four years ago. My month-long trip is nearing its end, and I’ve got many new images coming, but this may end up being my favorite. I’ve had mostly zero skies to speak of on the southwestern leg of my autumn travels, but that’s actually advantageous for images like this. It helps not to be distracted by an explosive sky and tempted to put on a wide-angle lens, when focusing on more intimate telephoto compositions. The light on these dunes is simply magical when the sun is low on the horizon.

If you like the look of my images, you may be interested in knowing I teach my processing workflow and techniques online via Skype! By popular demand, I’m also offering pre-recorded videos on a preliminary basis, since I’m on the road. Though they’re not finished products with proper video production (I plan on beginning to release those this winter), these videos have all the information on my most important techniques, and they come at a discount as opposed to a personalized session on Skype. I also offer private workshops, and I’ve got a bigger tour for 2015 announced already. You can find more information or contact me at my website: http://ift.tt/YdCotQ

A unique view of the tufa formations of Mono Lake, California under stormy skies at sunset. Looks best on black.

Since the water level here has dropped in the past couple of years, compositions incorporating water or reflections are much harder to come by. This left me looking for a frame for these strange towers, and this was what found. I thought the curling wave formation of the foreground, along with the stormy skies, looked pretty SPOOKY.

This image is comprised of several stacked exposures for depth of field at f/22 for the foreground frame (it was mere inches from my lens), one for the main formations at f/16, and one at f/8 for the sky.
