Storm Clouds Over Mesquite Dunes - Death ValleyI hiked about a mile in to capture these hikers admiring the storm clouds.
Helios Over the Desert - Death Valley
Helios Over the Desert - Death ValleyI was looking the other way trying to get a grand view down the valley. I was happy that I looked this way. After this, the wind picked up enough to knock my tripod over. It was a good thing my camera wasn't still on it.
After the Rain - Death Valley
After the Rain - Death ValleyI arrived a day eariler while it was raining heavily. Death Valley can have flash floods and the rangers will not take tours into the box canyons if there is a hint of rain. This image is not a box canyon, but it looks freshly carved.

All of It - Zabriskie Point - Death ValleyThis is the shot I came to get. I wanted to get the entire scene. I also wanted to have clouds in the sky. It's a very different scene without the clouds. This is four combined shots with the very widest angle lens I have.
Gower Gulch - Death Valley
Gower Gulch - Death ValleyZabriskie Point has a great view of big dry wash called, "Gower Gulch." It goes all the way down to the valley floor. I hope to hike into it one day.
Hiking Selfie - Death Valley
Hiking Selfie - Death ValleyI wanted to hike through Gower Gulch. I had to park at Golden Canyon and hike to the Gower Gulch entrance. I didn't make it it. It was getting late and the wind started howling and it didn't feel safe. That didn't stop me from taking this selfie on the way back.
Peaks - Death Valley
Peaks - Death ValleyI like the curving peaks of Gower Gulch. This is not the best photo, but i will get an awesome shot one of these days.
