Last weekend we visited family in Los Angeles.  We started talking about photographic adventures and Death Valley came up.  I thought I would go back through my images from earlier this year and post a few more from my trip to Death Valley with John Barclay and Chuck Kimmerle.

This image is from the “infamous” racetrack basin.  Nobody knows exactly how these rocks move across the basin.  Which direction did this 18-inch rock come from???

Anyway, it was an awe-inspiring site to visit and explore.  Staying with the Black and White theme of the workshop, I focused on the contrast between the elements within the frame.  I darkened the tracks slightly to help pop them out from the flats.
