Death Valley Squared

by Rich Greene

The sunrise at Death Valley's Zabriskie Point literally has photographers standing in line waiting for that perfect moment. I had plenty of shots of the standard view. I decided to zoom in to make this one more abstract.
Equipment: Nikon D80

I've been fascinated by photography and photographs since I was a boy. I took a long hiatus then got back into it seriously about three years ago. I'm now trying to make up for lost time.

Terrific composition. Using your zoom really paid off. Congratulations.

Death valley must be a photographer’s paradise; the downside is that you have to get very creative to get a shot that no one else is taking; well done with this one.

Interesting perspective and an eerie feel to it. Nice!

Quite a pattern!

The way each and everyone looks at things and uses it to materialize a scene on a single image, makes this journey a rich and wonderful experience. The places are also decisive, but the final result its always more dependent on the Artist inner-self and inner-experience. Too much poetry? Maybe… -Just ignore it and enjoy This Amazing Photo.
Thanks for sharing

What I like is it feels upside down, then look at it again and it isn’t! Would make a wonderful fabric print to use in my portraits!

Why does this remind me of baguettes, side by side? Must be because I didn’t eat breakfast! A wonderfully textural shot!

Great shot Rich. The landscape almost seems alive with movement to me, like waves lapping on a shore.

I don’t know what I’m looking at so my brain cannot process this, but it’s interesting…

Death Valley is incomparable, but you’ve managed to show me a new angle! The textures, lines, and shaded colors in this shot would make a frustrating but wonderful jigsaw puzzle, don’t you think?

Wow! Fascinating shot of the Zabriskie point :)
