Taken in what I believed to be a uniquely discovered and difficult to find location (until another photographer showed up just before sunrise and yelled across the landscape at me that I was pointing my camera the wrong way and that sunrise was, in fact, "over there!" behind me. Thanks bud, I was aware ;-)
Taken in a remote playa of Death Valley National Park. I arrived to the park late at night and wandered off into the middle of the flats. When I woke, I was treated to this fiery sky, glowing mountains, and a gamut of patterns and textures below me. Big thanks to Sarah Marino and Ron Coscorrosa for their book, "Desert Paradise." Reading it before my first Death Valley trip really helped me learn more about the park and pointed me in the right direction for my explorations. Can't wait to get back here again as there are so many more places left to explore!
