    Abraxas, having seen these wonderful, almost alien, landscapes that you post, I'm warming to the idea that you could, in fact, be one of the Mars Rovers ;)

    Seriously though, I always enjoy your work, and this one is no exception.

    Another fantastic landscape. This is one of those images that would benefit tremendously by being large...

    Thanks. There's really not much else to do other than take pictures.

    Thanks. Yes, especially out a ways from the parking lot where they get deep. These salt formations are as hard as rocks. A person's leg will break before one of these do. The parking lot is in the middle of this wonderful mess. The lot and the road to it were part of an old road to haul borax across the valley. The Chinese laborers that built it had to pound it flat with sledge hammers, flat enough to roll 20-mule team wagons across it.

    Thank you.

    I agree. There's a lot of detail in the mountains beyond as well as in the salt crystals up close.

    Exceptional tones and execution and I agree that this might benefit from being larger.

    My only criticism of this one might be that your images are always so harmonious front to back but this one ... my attention keeps jumping from the foreground patterns to the background white mountain. I generally step back (lean back) to look at your landscapes but this one seems to keep me from focusing on the image as a whole.

    On the grand scheme of things, that's a minor nit pick because I'm drawn to interest points even when my attention to the image is divided.

    Very nice. Although the brightness of the foreground makes it hard to concentrate on.

    edit: maybe it's just my laptop

    Thank you.

    Thanks for your comments. The original size is quite nice. Due to past issues with posting any larger than 800 pixels width, this is as good as it gets.

    Thank you.
