    Sunrise shots taken last February. Zabrieski Point is 'the' premiere sunrise location in Death Valley.

    I like the 2nd one best...nice range of tones.

    #3 looks pretty cool...with that nice side lighting...but it lacks a sense of scale...is that a mountain...or a mole hill?

    Nice series.
    Like Mike pointed out...this place can be a real challenge! I just drove through when I was there a couple weeks ago. There were too many people.

    A veritable landslide of Death Valley photography. Good stuff. #3 is my favorite of the series.

    Thanks everyone. It's a little hard to get scale as everything's kind of alkaline and dead. Pretty though. Too many people can be a real pain to deal with. I stay away from the tourist hot spots on weekends unless there's no way I can do it otherwise. And, it helps considerably that I look like I'll eat their arm.

    While I do see in the first two why this Zabriesky Point is THE sunrise point in the area, I still like the last bestestest of all! It could have been one of those photos that I'd admire in any "Beautiful Earth" book by NatGeo or something similar!!!!
