| p.1 #3 · p.1 #3 · Death Valley sand dunes-what focal length did you use more? |
The last few times that I have been at the dunes since acquiring a second body, I've shot with the 24-105 on one camera and the 100-400 on the other. I think on balance I've shot with the 100-400 more than the wide views, but that's just me.
Here's one at 24mm with the 24-105:
Here's one at 400mm with the 100-400:
There are 5 major dune fields in Death Valley National Park. The Mesquite Dunes which I'm guessing you are talking about are by far the most accessible, though the Eureka Dunes can also be driven to through rougher road conditions and are really special. Ibex Dunes are a dirt road and a hike, Panamint Dunes are a rough road and a long hike, and the Saline Valley Dunes are a long rough road to some of the most remote real estate you can visit outside of Alaska in the US.
If you're hitting the main dues (which I love), you will find that if you hike long enough, there are no footprints. And if you haven't been there before, I'd recommend sunset before Sunrise since you can figure out ahead of time where you want to be to shoot.
