    Taken at the 'Race Track' in Death Valley a couple weeks ago. It's hard to come up with a different view of something that's been photographed a million times.

    Wow, another incredible Woodsac thread! That first one ROCKS. I love so many things about it: the composition, the detail in the dried earth, the tones in the mountain range, the contrast between the foreground and background, and that lovely 'swoosh' leading one's eye into the photo. I love love love this one.

    Regardless of whether or not it's been shot a countless number of times before, it's always different, and always makes an interesting subject. I like the contrast in you shots.

    So am I the only one that didn't know about 'the race track'? :blushing::blushing:

    But that's not important.

    Woodsac, these are absolutely stunning! Really.

    Many, many thanks to everyone :)

    This is a really neat place. There's a ton of info on the net if anyone's interested. In all that I've read, I can't believe nobody told me how freakn' cold it was back in the valley on the way there!

    It was 58* just outside of Scotty's Castle, Death Valley at 6:30am. When I got to the racetrack at 8am, it was only 35*. And at one point on the way there...it dropped to 25*!!!.

    It was definitely worth the 60 mile round trip of rough dirt road. Pictures just don't do this place justice. I'd like to go back just before a storm and catch some really dramatic, low clouds.

    I've never even heard of this place and I live in Cali :(
    So whats the deal on these rocks? I'll probably just google it. #1 is awesome but #2 is funny it looks like the others are trying to catch the first one.
