Entry Description

During a trip to photograph the high contrast dunes in Death Valley, I arrived to find clouds, rain and high winds for three days. Each morning I would head out to the dunes hoping to find some wonderful textured dunes. What actually transpired was three days of overcast skies, soft light and blowing sands. I don't normally shoot color, but each morning this really elegant soft light with a warm glow of tones would rise to east. Hopefully these images express the elegant light of these mornings.

About Photographer

For nearly 30 years now, Jack’s passion for photography and been focused on his love for the landscape and our natural environment. Searching for the “Lure of Light” has taken Jack to many remote and unique places as well as enhances his ability to develop “the art of seeing” through both Grande landscape and detailed still life As I continued to reach out, explore and reflect within the serenity of nature, I started to see and feel. Rushing streams soon became the ambient noise affecting calm. Landscape grandeur created the sense of humility. Spring blossoms invigorated, fall colors realized finish and fresh winter snow renewed. Chasing the light of these days is akin to chasing a dream. Sometimes dreams do come true.
