nice shot of the dune ripples, austin! and a bit of plant life to see it's not all barren out there :) are you sure you mapped this exactly? ;)

No, I know it's "out there somewhere." If you can find the place exactly, based on the sattelite photos made many years later, be my guest :-)

If I had it to shoot over again, I'd include the top of the yucca plant, but not the shadows on the upper right. I was probably down on one knee, and would probably get lower down, too.

Excellent composition sir, the shadows add the illusion of depth. If I didn't know any better this could be near the Salton Sea, but it's a wonderful well exposed capture!
