Death Valley National Park, California
The shapes of large sand dunes are mesmerizing at almost anytime of the day but take on a more seductive look as the sun begins to set creating long shadows and highlights the shapes and curves of the dunes. This image is from Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes in Death Valley National Park. These Dunes are at the northern end of the valley floor and are nearly surrounded by mountains on all sides. Several movies have filmed here, including some of the Star War series, based on their easy access from the road and proximity to Hollywood.
