Gone to See California. Day 5: Death Valley Spring 2011 Photography Workshop with Michael Mariant.
Before the workshop started, I joined Michael as he reconnoitered and GPS tagged a path to the Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes in Death Valley National Park. We would be going out to this location Friday and Sunday morning well before sunrise in the dark. The following images are of Michael going out to the sand dunes taken with a Leica X1 camera. The temperatures were cool by Death Valley standards, notice Michael wearing a green vest.
I am a scientist by training (Eckerd College, BSc; Caltech, Ph.D.). I worked for 27 years as a Chemist in the Pharmaceutical Industry developing processes to manufacture medicines for human and animal health. I now spend my time as a photographer and world traveler. My interests in photography include the natural world, wildlife, landscapes, skyscapes, and seascapes. I have traveled to over 50 countries over the last 10 years, often on Semester at Sea voyages. While at home in New Jersey, I spend time on a home renovation project and expanding my wildflower garden/meadow.
