Hikers along the shadowed wash in the badlands below Zabriskie Point, in Death Valley NP, break out into direct sunlight near the intersection with Golden Canyon Trail that loops up and back down to Badwater Road.

A really fascinating shot. The structure and shape of the hills are breathtaking as well as the light and the color. Only at the second glance I revealed the hikers, which gives the whole picture a new perspective and a good relationship. This picture awakens the desire in me dto visit this place one day. Best regards

Thank you, Martin. Death Valley is much larger and diverse than what is depicted in movies and on television. What you will experience varies widely with the seasons, weather and time of day. If you are serious about going there I recommend doing a great deal of research about the park so that all your surprises will be pleasant ones.
