Death Valley, world renowned for being the hottest, driest & lowest desert on Earth with its glowing sand dunes & snow capped mountains. 12,000 km² of geological fascination from over 3 million years in form of multi-coloured rock formations, salt flats, canyons & arid desert wasteland.
Despite the harsh environment nearly a million visitors each year make the 210 km road trip through the valley. I too wanted to try my luck & shoot some material of this rugged landscape. Being March the temperature was bearable but still around the 30°C mark. Especially from midday you need a hat, sun lotion & plenty of water. Before entering the Park I filled the tank with gas although their are a couple of gas stations in the park itself but you never know what can happen, for example when the filling station has no more gas for sale.
