    First off I want to say that I hope everybody is safe and sound I am at a loss for words about what is happening around us I live 20 miles from NYC in Bergen County NJ the other hot spot. It is just nuts around here, very surreal. The conversations (by phone or distance ), the images of places that see thousands and thousands by the hour completely empty (the Subway and Times Square)... I have no doubt we will get through this and come out stronger on the other end.. My favorite hashtag of late that I saw on Facebook:
    #staytheF***HOME :)

    Now to the Post:
    So as the world was sort of collapsing around us about 3 weeks ago unknown to us we were out wandering the desert.I had a planned trip to Las Vegas for work and as always I make a run to DV beforehand so I invited bart to join me (his first run) I had lots of places in mind to show him.. We camped over by Stovepipe which put us close to most of what I wanted to cover but we made are way around the park. I have been completely paralyzed by the events of late with absolutely no ability to focus so I am just getting around to processing my images.. what I do have which I am posting today was done while I was on the road in Vegas in the Hotel.

    Without droning on and on I will just say I marked down another excellent adventure with Bart and made a few nice images along the way.. I have been through the park many times and it is one of my favorite places in the world . I have lots to share so I will start with theses (4) and then keep them coming as they are processed. As always all comments welcome, thanks for viewing regards, Dean
    Stay Safe !

    Sounds like quite the adventure. Stay safe.

    I love the moonset shot at Zabriskie and the B&W shot at the dunes in the second image. That one almost looks like a zen garden with the arcs of ripples on the surface. Nice to have such footprint free dunes in the last two images.

    Beautiful, Dean. #2 is my favorite. Like Alan said, it looks like a Zen garden.

    A fine group of images, Dean. I've never seen the Dunes like that. I would have been pretty excited. I was in DV on the 12th for a few days and then the Owens Valley, myself.
