mesquite meltdown (death valley national park, ca)

My first time here and I had no idea what I was doing. If you can believe, I could not even find the freakin' dunes from the parking lot. These things are huge and I had no idea why I kept walking into shrubs. After about 30 minutes, finally got into the heart of the dunes but it was too late to figure out any comp. Sweating, sad, sore and defeated I track it back to the car and noticed the cool patterns when I got super low. Probably because I was crawling at this point. Snapped a few shots before crying in the car.
