Line, Light & Texture by JB | Mar 19, 2014 | Abstract, B&W, Death Valley | 15 comments Facebook Google+ Pinterest reddit Like 0 Twitter When shooting the dunes, I am always searching for line, light and texture. This composition seemed to have it all. [Tweet “Line, Light & Texture”] Related 15 Comments Rich Lewis on March 19, 2014 at 1:31 pm Great photograph. I find your b&w sand dune photographs interesting because they are so different from the color ones I make when in Death Valley. It never ceases to amaze me how different photographers can create such different stuff in the exact same place.

Reply john8276 on March 19, 2014 at 1:58 pm Thanks Lea Reply James Milligan on March 19, 2014 at 4:07 pm I love this composition. The crest of the middle dune is an eye catcher. I find it interesting to see how our group of photographers “saw” the dunes. It might be interesting to ask each member to post their “Best B&W’ of the dunes . I will bet there is a vast variety of interpretations of this landscape . Reply john8276 on March 19, 2014 at 4:16 pm Thanks Jim. I love that idea. I’m going to ask for each to send me an image and then I’ll do a blog post showing them. Thanks! Reply Joan Herwig on March 19, 2014 at 4:43 pm Yes, indeed it does have it all – fabulous image John! Reply john8276 on March 20, 2014 at 12:24 am Thank you Joan. Reply marty golin on March 19, 2014 at 4:59 pm Do you also look for the dark, or is that a sub-set of light? Reply john8276 on March 19, 2014 at 5:03 pm Good question Marty. All part of light. Of course you understand that with out the dark this image does not work. In fact with many images the dark is what makes it work at all. Reply robyn on March 20, 2014 at 12:22 am Fabulous contrast and texture. Love it! Reply john8276 on March 20, 2014 at 12:23 am Thanks Robyn Reply Stephan Dietrich on March 20, 2014 at 4:41 am Cloudman Barclay and now Sandman Barclay! … Your visions and captured visions are awesome! The only thing missing is the blowing sand… It is always amazing that the “night crew” (weather and wind) changes and erases the footsteps and creates new settings for the next day… as if you were the first to ever set foot there (if you awake early enough) …. I have always been amazed of the constant change of the sand… Like the ocean waves…. it is never the same… and Death Valley should be called “Live (or Alive) Valley” as it is very much alive and ever-changing!
