I can’t help it, I love this desert shot

I just came across this shot of the Kelso dunes in the Mojave National Preserve.  I spent the night in my van more or less where the photo was taken (one of my favorite camp sites) after driving 14 hours or so from Jay Maisel’s workshop in Santa Fe, NM.  There’s something about the balance of the light and the weight of the clouds, as if the entire sky is sagging like an overburdened mattress.  Nothing funky has been done to it other than basic exposure/contrast tweeks in Lightroom.  The light was beautiful that morning and I had just enough time to fill a few flash cards before hitting the road again for San Jose.
