Hillside detail at Zabriskie Point
This photo is of a hillside at Zabriskie Point in Death Valley. This is a popular spot for photographers particularly in the early morning and late evening. The sun as it rises and sets casts shadows and light on the peaks and valleys near the overlook. Its easy to get carried away with the grand vistas this spot allows, but zooming in and paying attention to the more intimate details can result in stunning images.
