I had been yearning to go to Death Valley for long.
The Nikonians Academy has a great workshop in there, lead by master instructor Michael Mariant. Work had not permitted me to go.
Most inspiring images have been made there, for example this one by expert photographer Charlie Choc (cchoc).
It was therefore with great excitement and anticipation that I finally went to Death Valley thanks to the invitation of great friends.

Here is an image made at sunrise of the Mesquite Dunes:

Nikon D700, on a MAGICA 3.3 tripod system, 14-24mm f/2.8G ED IF AF-S Nikkor @ 24mm, f/14, 1/100s, ISO 400, WB: Daylight
The lens had a LEE 3 f-stops Neutral Density Graduated filter, soft edge, over the horizon.
This shot was made probably one minute after the sunrise golden hour.

Have a great time :-)
