Photographs that reveeal the magic and wonder of Death Valley National Park.
Badwater Dawn (2011)
In wet years rain water can collect on the Badwater playa. It's a brief phenomenon, sometimes lasing but a few weeks or even days. For the third year in a row we were fortunate to experience this unique situation. The morning we photographed sunrise at Badwater we were rewarded with one of the most glorious sunrise I have ever beheld in Death Valley. The colors were breathtaking and the way the pink clouds swooped up into the sky was uplifting. I felt a wonderful sense of exhilaration and joy that I tried to capture in this image.
