DUNE - DEATH VALLEY. This wind swept dune at Death Valley National Park is a good example of a classic S-curve in nature. Here the wind blows from the left to right. When the wind blows over the sand, ridges are formed. When the grains of sand reach the crest they slide smoothly down the side of the dune that is protected from the wind. This photograph was shot with a 4x5 view camera with 90mm lens on color negative film. I scanned the film and used Adobe Photoshop to convert the image to black and white, then adjust the final image.
