Default Death Valley



This is Sabrisky Point in Death Valley..
It's about 45 - 50 degrees at this moment...




This place is called 'Devils Golfcourse'
A really good name!
The terrain is so rugged and scarp..
I've walked trough there a bit... But thats really hard to do..
I think it's hard to figure out this picture
The rocks are about 1 feet high...
And it's all around me at the moment that i made this photo...

Melanie,

You almost make me want to go to Death Valley. Beaitufl in their own special way. Based on the perspective in the photo, the rocks look like they are the size of river stones not rocks a foot across. If you hadn't mentioned their size I would have thought otherwise.

Thanks for the insight into Death Valley.

Nice pair of pictures! They almost make the valley look inviting.

Hi Melanie___

Without your description including temperature, Death Valley might appear to the casual eye to be a desolate, yet benign
environment.

Great detail and composition!

Melanie, did you happen to be there when the runners
were at Death Valley? It is somewhat insane but they
hold a 135 mile foot race there every year (or every other
year?).

tnxs all...

but indeed... this is really a place to visit!!!

Digcamfan:
I wasn't there with that race..
but there were a lot of testcars!
A couple of jaguars, a ford and something else..
My brother went nuts!
those cars weren't released yet and where full of tape so no-one could take a good look....

Jazcan:
I was holding on like crazy!!!!
