Death Valley National Park offers many fascinating opportunities for photographers.  This is early morning at Bad Water Basin, which is 282 below sea level, and according to Wikipedia the "repeated freeze–thaw and evaporation cycles gradually push the thin salt crust into hexagonal honeycomb shapes".

"The name Death Valley is forbidding and gloomy. Yet here you can find colorful badlands, snow-covered peaks, beautiful sand dunes, rugged canyons, the driest and lowest spot in North America, and the hottest in the world."  Quoted from the Death Valley National Park web site. 

I've lived in California most of my life, but I've only made two trips to Death Valley National Park.  I'm just home from my second visit and I enjoyed every minute!
