Wonderful captures. Death Valley holds more wonders to photograph than perhaps any other place on earth. It's an unforgiving environment for the unprepared, and the shift in temperatures can vary as much as 80 degrees F in a 24 hour period. I've been out there when the temp dropped so fast, you could actually hear the rocks break, almost shreiking in the night air. Lots of flora and fauna, incredible rock formations as you've so generously shown us and as much sand as any box could handle.

You are quite the traveler!

Yes, wonderful captures!

And much as I love your Indian and Icelandic photos, it's nice to see you working somewhere else. Death Valley is a great location (especially in January, IMHO).

Great 1st pic, it really gives a sense of scale and looks great against the patchy blue sky.

Chris, Eric, Churly, Tim, Brad: thank you for your comments.

Eric,

Death Valley is the only place in the United States that evokes in me feelings similar to those when I am in the Icelandic Highlands.

I think I understand how you feel. I spent three weeks in Iceland in 1974, and two weeks in Death Valley just a few years ago, and both places make me feel closer to primal Nature than any other places I've photographed. And your photos do capture the essences of both places very well.

Both DV and Iceland are also special for me, I can't say exactly why!

Bravo for your Death Vally photos, they are in the same class as your Iceland & India images.
