    Please forgive my humble efforts, I'm not much of a landscape photographer but I was on holiday in the USA last november and I really loved Death Valley.

    These shots were taken with my Sigma 17-70 2.8-4.5 (camera = Pentax *ist DL) and any advice, C&C always welcome :) E.g. - is this a good lens for landscape, I presume wide angle is better but is this wide enough?

    Ok, I see. It looks like you went up the trail back toward Zabrieski Point. I've done the hike from Zabreiski down to Golden Canyon and the Golden Canyon back to Red Cathedral a couple times. The Cathedral Trail can be a bit of a trick to find. Looks like you made the best of it.

    Did you check out the weird crystals growing in between the layers of rock in #4? Looks like glue holding the rock together that's coming apart.
