Come with me into the dune field. I did the hike. You get to enjoy the view.
This is an afternoon inside the Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes. I made this panorama by stitching-up 4 manual exposures created with the aid of my tripod.
Even in this remote area, it was near impossible to find open areas without human footprints pressed into the terrain.
From this vantage, I was far away the action on the tallest dune that is pictured at the central top third of the composition. With occasional gusts of wind, I could hear leaves rustling on the shrubs. Loose sands brushing across the ground level surface made sandpapery brushing sound. The desert air was dry and laced with a balsam-like pungency of creosote.
