Death Valley in the Fall

BetterPhoto.com Editor's Pick   Death Valley in the Fall
Death Valley in the Fall
This beautiful little spot is actually at Death Valley Junction across the street from the Amargosa Opera House and Hotel. One of my favorite areas and I have photographed there often.

An exquisitely framed and presented scene. Who would expect to see a fresh pool in Death Valley?

Thank you Laurence. I so appreciate your kind support. I have looked at SOME of your gallery and your work is incredibly dynamic! As much as I love the wonder of all your bright images, I am especially drawn to the soft kittens... I think I asked how you accomplished that, IF you would care to share. I just always have to ask! Merry Christmas to you and yours.

A huge thank you to each of you and I am very sorry for taking so long to get back to some of you.

Hi, Mary... this is not right in Death Valley proper but is at Death Valley Junction. located across the street from the Amargosa Opera house/Hotel and set back far enough off the road that it would not be photographed often.

I had not visited your gallery in awhile, but when I checked it out, I was blown away by your shot of Death Valley in the Fall. What a gorgeous capture. Looks like a beautiful, peaceful, calm oasis. The lighting is perfect, and I am impressed with the balance of the shot, especially keeping all the detail in the shadows, while not washing out the picture in the sun light. Now one of my favorites!
