Sunrise, Zabriskie Point, Facing East, Death Valley NP  DSD0100  About six photographers were set up, facing west, to catch the sunrise on the mountains across the valley.  Then I turned around.  And this was the sky in the east just before sunrise.  Another photographer told me that long ago - when you're taking a photo of a landscape and the light is changing, turn around.  It works more often than you think it would.

Badwater Basin, Death Valley NP  DSD0663  This is the lowest point in North America - 282 feet below sea level.  There is no outlet for the water which flows into it (which isn't much), so it evaporates, leaving the salts and the minerals behind.
