Being 69 years old and in a high risk group, I have been staying home quite a lot the past week and a half. However, I'm not bored. Indeed, I am taking this time to work on more art. I am trying to finish up my Death Valley National Park series. I have severn out of a planned eight, possibly nine pieces for that particular park collection. The latest piece is Mesquite Flats Sand Dunes and the Amargosa Mountains, Lifting Fog Early Morning.
My partner and I have a unique experience when we visited Death Valley last December. On the third of three and one-half days in the park, a low pressure system came through causing a whole day of drizzling rain in Death Valley, probably meeting the average rainfall for the year in that single day. When we awoke the next morning, the valley was covered in heavy fog. But, with the rising sun, the fog began to lift. I was able to capture a number of photographs, including the basis for this piece.
