Thanks Mom for teaching us to always look for beauty in the simple things in life.  What can be more simple than a sea gull flying along the sea shore.  What can be more beautiful than a sea gull flying along the sea shore.  You will always be remembered!

Death Valley: Mesquite Dunes – Waves

131127_Mesquite Dunes - Waves by Karl G. Graf. Canon 7D, EF 70-200mm f2.8L IS with 1.4X extender @ 98mm, f/22, 1/4 sec, ISO 200

This image was taken along the trail of Chuck Kimmerle’s footsteps.  He did not stop here, so must have not thought it was interesting.  The mini-scene reminded me of a set of waves rolling into shore.  I worked the scene from multiple angles and came up with this as the view that most depicted waves.  I actually was thinking B&W when I took this image.  The shadows and early morning light provided the sharp contrast along the sand ripple edges.
