The Mobius Arch in the Alabama Hills at sunrise. I sat below the arch on this stormy morning getting pelted with rain and wind praying that the clouds in the east would break up to allow some light onto the sierra and the storm clouds. Luckily enough, right at sunrise, light peered through the clouds and illuminated the scene. Too bad Mt. Whitney was shrouded in clouds, but it still made for a beautiful photo none the less.
Capturing this photograph just down from the crest of the tallest sand dune in North America, Medano Pass looks like the perfect wind tunnel for the South-westerlies to flow through. While the wind escapes to the Northeast, the sand does not and falls to form these massive structures. A beautiful coverage of clouds creates wonderful shadows that move across the landscape without a sound.
