Death Valley Sunrise

Crazy about shooting sun rises, i decided to go to the top of death valley mountain at 4.30am. Little did I know that the gusty wind was at its highest that morning blowing me with the car (almost). I prayed that it slows down but i wasn't lucky and didn't dare step out until the sun almost came out. I had to act fast and timed my shot when the wind blew at less speed. The cold weather didn't help either but the result was pleasing so I now have a story to tell:)
