Wandering Wednesday - Death Valley

 Happy Wandering Wednesday, this time it's Death Valley.
Spring Break in Death Valley seemed like a good idea when I booked the campsite.  But then I got really sick two days before, (fever and everything) and there was a very early heat wave, so I didn't get to go.  So these are not my pictures, but my dear husband's.  It's a tremendous place, and I was sorry to not get to visit again (we went there on our honeymoon all those years ago).
 See that little white rectangle? This is looking up from Badwater at the sea-level sign. It is really weird to think of being below sea-level.

Pretty good zoom on this camera.

View across the salt-flats.

It really does look like dirty snow close up.

 This picture shows some of the amazing colors that you see in the mountains of Death Valley.

 The new walkways out to the Badwater ponds.

 This is why they film other planet movies here in Death Valley.

It all starts looking like a painting at some point.

Hi Nadia, Yes, desolate is a great word for Death Valley. Glad you enjoyed the transparency exercises, definitely a lot to be done with them.
