'I wish we were desert winds...we would be tempestuous and bold and fierce and soft and hushed and roaring and cool and burning.
I wish we were the mystical emptiness...every being passing through would tell us how blessed we were to be empty and yet never barren.
I wish I was mad...then this mortal malaise would only be a fleeting sigh and every thought of you the reason for this joyful madness.' ~ Prabir C. Purkayastha.

An evening in winds over 100 miles-hour in the Mesquite Dunes of Death Valley. Totally alone.

Nikon D850, Nikkor 24-70mm @ 26mm.
Two exposures : f-11, 1-60s, ISO 64
and f-22, 1-250s, ISO 64
