    Thomas, is this image reversed left-to-right? I ask because if looking south in late afternoon, the light would be coming from the right not the left. Still, a very nice image.

    "Idyllic" would serve as well as "Grand" in the thread title. Beautiful work, and not easy to achieve.

    Thanks Jerry but the light is coming from the right. If you look carefully at some of the trees in the valley their shadows fall to their left.

    Thanks Mark. Although photogenic, the Diablo Range has been ignored by all or most of the famous photographers from this area despite its proximity. I don't think AA, the Weston's, or any member of the F64 group took one photo in it. Same for Galen Rowell who also lived on its western flank.

    Oops. I got my pictures mixed. I was referring to the image in post #9 by scm that Jon commented on, rather than yours in post #8 (that I missed). That's what I get for looking at the latest post in the thread first.

    +1. I always like having a road in the pix. Somehow, my mind can enter the picture "driving" (?) the road. :-)

    Wonderful Pix! Here's mine...a "grand view" of the Dunes at Stovepipe Wells, Death Valley. Great effort to trek out there at the very last minute...barely time to get one image before the light faded. Layton 5x7 camera, 90mm Grandagon w/orange filter, FP4 film, PMK Pyro. Gotta get back there soon!

    Nice last-minute 'grab', John!

    A photo of the other sand dune in Death Valley National Park (Eureka Valley). A fellow photographer and I spent a couple nights there -- wandering around the dunes together while making sure we did not put footprints into each others images (unless we wanted them)!
