Death Valley, California
Death Valley National Park is the largest national park in the lower 48 states, and it makes for a great scenic photography destination. We've all heard about the drought in California but with a strong El Nino weather pattern shaping up this year, the state just might get some moisture this winter. If winter storms do bring rain to Death Valley, then the spring can be spectacular with awesome wildflower displays. Of course even without flowers, Death Valley is great for landscape photography. One of my favorite places (and certainly off the beaten path) is "the Devil's Racetrack" pictured here. This is where large rocks move across a dried up lake bed and create evidence of their unlikely movement in the form of trails.
For this shot I wanted to emphasize the size of the rocks that can move here and the trail that can result from that movement. I got low with a wide-angle lens to do that.
