Dune Abstract I, Cold Flames Ascending

Oceano Dunes Natural Preserve

Although the primary inspiration for my work is the 19th century Hudson River School Art tradition, I have also made an extensive study of the work of West Coast, Group f64 photographers, especially Edward Weston, Brett Weston, Ansel Adams, and Imogen Cunningham. The influence of the Westons is particularly evident in this photograph from the Oceano Dunes from January 2013. Brett was first to discover the wonders of the Oceano Dunes, and his photograhs inspired Edward to visit the dunes in 1934 to make an epic series of abstract photographs that were his visual interpretations of Bach fugues. I spent a week in the dunes in the winter of 2013, arriving before dawn and again just before sunset to catch the best light and shadows when the sun is low in the sky. I have visited and photographed in several other dunes locations in the U.S., including Great Sand Dunes National Park in my home state of Colorado, Mesquite Dunes in Death Valley National Park, White Sands National Park, Atlantic and Gulf coast barrier islands, but Oceano is by far my favorite dunes for the sheer amount of amazing forms and patterns in a relatively small, accessible area. All dunes locations can be extremely challenging, especially when the wind kicks up, trudging up sandy slopes carrying heavy equipment where you literally are taking two steps forward and one step backward. But I love the abstract shapes that wind and light create. Under the right conditions, it's a blast finding compositions and working feverishly to get as many on film as I can before the sun rises too high and the light becomes too intense. It is easy to get into flow and lose all sense of time, the best way to work. Photo © copyright by Michael Lynn Roberts.
