Ascending the Crown

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Another favorite shot from Death Valley's Mesquite Dunes after sand storm hit in early March 2012. That's some unknown photographer on the highest dune. I followed his path for quite a distance from about 200-300 yards away, and once he got there I shot a bunch of images.
