Death Valley – 2

Friday, March 4th, 2011

These images from Death Valley were shot with a longer lens. This first is from Racetrack where rocks shoot around on their own.

This is from Zabriskie Point at dawn.

Death Valley

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2011

Last week Bob and I had the great good fortune to spend five days in Death Valley with award winning landscape and nature photographer Jon Cornforth. It was cold and windy and mostly clear – without the dramatic storm clouds that give photographs so much punch. But Jon is a terrific guy and was generous in sharing his tips and tricks so we learned a lot. Here are a few of my images from the week.

First from the salt flats:

A pair from sand dunes, one taken before sunset and the other taken just after sunset.

A second pair taken from another sand dune. Again, one taken right at sunset and the other taken about 20 minutes later as the sky was getting red.
