We faced all these elements there in late March – especially the winds. Looks like my camera sensor held up well, with only one obvious dust spot that I have to have cleaned up. Even had a storm. Temperatures from 92 – 70 (!!) during the day. My favorite shoot was at the Mesquite dunes one morning; the Eureka dunes were a close second. There was a late afternoon storm over Zabriskie, which is usually an early morning site. We also caught some pictures looking back toward the Zabriskie overlook from the Golden trail in late afternoon against a very dark sky. Dante’s View is gorgeous, but the winds had stirred up a general haze in the distance. I have been told the wild flowers this year might disappoint because even by Death Valley standards moisture has been very low. But keep an eye out.
