Painted Sand: Pre-Dawn Colors on Mesquite Dunes, Death Valley

Pre-dawn colors painting the desert sand dunes in Death Valley. Aaron and I got up at 4:30 in the morning and hiked on the sand dunes for an hour or so in the dark to get to this spot as the first light of day appeared. This was still almost an hour before actual sunrise. This photo is from the western end of Mesquite Flat Dunes in Death Valley National Park, CA.
