Mesquite Wave


Fuji X-E2 – 18-55 lens at 18mm

The mesquite wave sounds like something fans would do at a football game.  In this case, I was doing the Mesquite wave in Death Valley!  I just fell (literally on my knees to get low) in love with this shape and am thrilled with the result.  I cropped a bit off the top as there was just too much negative space.

        I was up before breakfast. I was volunteering up at the park today and had to get out early, but I had to check out your shot before I left! But the rest of the week I am a lazy bum and sleep in. 🙂

    I think you are the only one in the group that did a belly flop to capture an image. At times I feel like the tripod locks us in to a visual perspective . Love the image and the visual flow.

      Dang, I wish that was my title… Visual Flow… love that Jim. Yeah, doing a belly flop in the sand it not normally a good idea…. 🙂

    Mesquite Mojo! … Laying down on the job… Awesome angle… From brilliant enhanced detail of the sand waves to sand flow, you’ve captured the fingerprint of the Mesquite magical sand. Mesquitemazing JB!
