Dune #3

Death Valley, CA

The dunes in Death Valley, immortalized by Edward Weston and Ansel Adams, are a spiritual, invigorating place. Sunrise turns the dunes into visual studies in line and graphic form. This image was exposed with a #15 yellow filter for 1/8 sec at f-32 minus. The 4×5 sheet film was processed at n+1 to expand out the contrast of the flat scene. The negative is then printed on grade 2½ paper.
