The gnarled remains of a large creosote bush are uncovered in the Mesquite Sand Dunes near Stovepipe Wells in Death Valley National Park at sunset. As the light faded, the color in the sky intensified. The long exposure blurred the movement of the clouds.
A morning storm fills the valley at Badwater Basin.
Driving back from Las Vegas in order to start a landscape photography workshop in Death Valley, the storm was breaking and sun beams were bouncing all over the landscape. Pulling into the parking lot at Zabriskie Point was my only option to record this dramtic weather. the geology of the badlands here coupled with the light beam on Manly Beacon all came together.
