Imperial Dunes

Category: aerial, landscape

The Imperial Dunes in Southern California had long been on my shoot list. After a few missed opportunities, I landed three hours north in Palm Springs with four hours until sunset. Full write-up on my blog.

CONTEXT

I tried around three times to take some photos of this remarkable place. It's relatively remote, making it a destination. The area is not difficult to access, it's off I-8, which runs from San Diego to Phoenix and beyond, but unless you are in Yuma, AZ, it's quite a drive from any large metro area. Several times I was "nearby" in Phoenix (3.5h) and had intentions of day-tripping to the dunes only to be thwarted by heat in the 120┬║s.

More about this shoot is on my blog. Read about here´╗┐.
