Briiliant shot, and exposure too as mentionned in the former com, not obvious to obtain such a result, I gues the light is tough in such place !

A beautiful panoramic vista that you've captured! I love the detail and DoF in this composition. A great series accompanied with great weather. Then again, when does it ever rain in Death Valley? ;-)

14 Apr 2011 1:10am

@Steven: I think Death Valley gets about a half an inch of rain per year on average. It did rain this year while we were there! Thanks for the comment Steven!
