Oceano Dunes Natural Preserve

I have photographed in several different dune fields, including Great Sand Dunes and Death Valley National Parks, Gulf Islands and Padre Islands National Seashores, and Oceano Dunes Natural Preserve. I've been to most of these places several times, at different times of the year, and my favorite is Oceano. In January 2014, I spent a week in the Oceano Dunes, photographing for a couple of hours at sunrise and sunset when the sun is lowest in the sky, the light is warm, and the shadows are long, giving the best contrast. Most of the photographs I make in the dunes are abstract images. When I found this particular view, however, I was inspired to create more of a grand scenic view. The massive sand dune opposite from where I was standing was mesmerizing--the long leading ridge line starting in the lower left and rising to a high plateau, then continuing to the summit, the repeating stacked layers on the right side; the detailed, textured, nearly black and white foreground, the blue sky contrasting with the dominant yellow dune, and the small but clearly discernable mountains at the upper right--were all compelling elements. Both the leading ridge lines of the big dune as well as the horizontal layers or stops on the right invite the viewer to climb up--to rise. My goal for this photograph is to inspire the same response in viewers.
