|Dante's Peak, Death Valley, iPhone4 Capture|
'The grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never dried all at once; a shower is forever falling; vapor is ever rising. Eternal sunrise , eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the earth rolls round'....John Muir
One of my favorite spots in Death Valley for sunset is Dante's View.
Located almost one mile up overlooking the Badwater Basin, Dante's never fails to give the perfect sunset. Additionally, when the Basin is water-logged, it becomes a visual experience beyond compare.
Basically, like most of Death Valley, the world stops on the peak. There is no sound and one is completely overwhelmed by the off-the-charts-color. You set up for the capture and it becomes rather difficult to not be in that moment.
Needless to say this day hit all the high-water marks...no pun intended.
