It was spectacular! The clouds made the mood perfect. I shot this with my beloved Sony α6000 - Sony 70-200 f-4 lightweight combo. I love that little cam!

How unique for a sand mound to appear above the mountains.

Love this one! Great contrast with the light on the sand and the darkness behind it!

Behind The Lens

Location
It was in California at the Dumont Dunes, which I discovered by accident.These are some massive Sand Dunes outside Death Valley. Accessible by car and absolutely no one around - I mean No One!!
Time
Sometime in the afternoon.
Lighting
The wind was pretty strong and blew some Golden Sand Dust around. It was spectacular! The clouds made the mood perfect.
Equipment
I shot this with my beloved Sony ?6000 - Sony 70-200 f-4 lightweight combo. I love that little cam! That's it.
Inspiration
It actually was more kind of a Snapshot. The beauty in this shot really came in the post processing and after the crop.
Editing
Yes. Lightroom and some Photoshop techniques. But there are no manipulations whatsoever.
In my camera bag
The Sony A7III with the Zeiss 16-35mm f/4 , the Sony A6000 with the 70-200 f/4 mounted. For nightshots I just switched my Samyang 14mm with the LAOWA 15mm f/2 Zero D - an Amazing Lens! And there is also the Zeiss 55mm f/1.8 in my bag. And my Mavic Pro is in another bag.
Feedback
Keep your eyes open;)
