Goblin Valley and Cloud
(Click image to enlarge)
Storms in the desert can arise suddenly, literally out of the blue on a clear
afternoon. Such was the case on this late afternoon just before sunset in Goblin
Valley. The winds were fierce and gusting. This necessitated gripping and
pressing down on the tripod during the exposure to dampen severe wind-caused
vibration. Blowing sand made my work that evening even more interesting.
