Death Valley dunes
Sunrise bathes the Mesquite Sand Dunes in California's Death Valley National Park in pinks and oranges and creates the shadows that emphasize the wind-whipped dunescapes. To avoid any detail and a sense of scale, Floris stationed himself a good distance away, overlooking the valley, and used a telephoto lens. 'The sensual forms and ever-changing nature of sand dunes fascinate me more than any other landscape,' he says.
