Yesterday's Footprints

Death Valley National Park, California

The pattern of these footprints in the sand dunes of Death Valley was appealing.  The wind has softened the depressions, and the lines of sand flowing down the slope give some texture to the smooth sand.  Sometimes broad vistas are appealing, and at other times it's the small features that show the beauty of a place.  Photo © copyright by Stephen Penland.
