ST Road Trip: Death Valley Update
"Badwater Basin is bad for sunsets" is what I was told. I disagree! The salt flats of the Basin represent the lowest place in North America, roughly -330ft below sea level. The salt has dried and hardened in these wonderful geometric patterns, and finding pieces that hadn't been disturbed by thousands of hikers required hiking several miles into the Basin. The flats are otherworldly- I have never seen or experienced anything like these before. Most enjoyable was walking around in search of interesting designs for the foreground, and I particularly like how this one salt trail leads your eye into the image. This was taken with the @leica_camera SL and 24-90mm lens.
