I photographed this scene on my winter 2014 visit to Death Valley National Park. The title of this photo comes from the story behind it. When I arrived at these dunes, the sky showed a lot of potential, so I setup my camera and waited for sunset.
As sunset grew closer, the clouds built in and it became overcast. I left my camera in place, and returned on the second day, but the same thing happened at sunset. On the third day, with my camera still in the same position, I was treated to a wonderful sunset with high clouds in the composition. The golden light didn't last long. I was only given a few minutes of good light before the sun dropped below the horizon.
If you would like to know more of the story behind this photo, please watch my video journal at the bottom of this page. It was filmed the day that I took this photo.
