Love Affair with the Dunes – Topaz B&W sale

I’ll admit, I have a love affair with the dunes. On our recent tour, we took the group out twice. A few of us found this particular scene and knew it would be a winner. (click to enlarge) 




If you’re interested in this type of dune photography, I would suggest you bring a long lens. For this I used my Nikon 70-200 and 1.7x teleconverter. Next time, I hope to have the new Fuji super zoom which will give me even more reach. If you have a 100-400 or something similar, that would be a great choice.

Starting tomorrow, Topaz will be offering a $20 discount on their excellent B&W Effects.  For the rest of the month it will be just $39.99.  Click this link and use the code MARBW

    That is really fantastic. I think you could have taken us out there every morning and it would have been different every day. What a fantastic place it was to make photos!

      We did consider a third run to the dunes. 🙂 I could go out morning and evening every day.

    I love dunes also. Can never tire of them. It’s amazing how rhe landscape keeps changing with the light and shadows.
    It was a truly awesome trip!!!

    Hey John, great shot. I’m with you regarding the dunes. Big fan. On my last visit, I used a 2x TC on my 70-200 and still wanted more. I thought it would be cool to try a 600, but then I’d need to go with you so you can carry it. 🙂 Keep up the great work!

      Kind of how I’m feeling about it Dennis! 🙂

    My jaw dropped, my eyes got really, really big, and a big “No WAY!” exploded out of my mouth! I’m gobsmacked, John. Seriously sensational!

    Beautiful image John, but does Cathy know about the love affair?

    • JB March 10, 2015 at 12:54 pm #

      Ummmm…. no John and you’re not gonna tell her either! 🙂
