Mesquite Dunes Sunset

Death Valley National Park

Sharp and sinuous lines of the foreground dunes juxtaposed against jagged lines of the background mountains along with the dissipating shapes of the clouds give this picture a "flat" graphic-like quality. The simplicity and two-dimensional perspective evokes a presence not unlike that found in Henri Matisse's cut outs. Six image focus stack at 400mm. Photo © copyright by Frank LeBlanc.
