One Final Sunrise, An Incredible Journey | THOUGHTS FROM THE ROAD & LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHY #10

It was time to say goodbye to Death Valley. What began with uncertainty, blossomed into an amazing weeklong journey exploring the various breath taking landscapes of Death Valley National Park. I definitely look forward to returning one day.

I had one final sunrise shoot, and I decided to return to the Salt Flats of Badwater Basin. I had the idea to try photographing with one prime lens, which was fairly wider at 21mm. 

My first composition of the morning focused on the colorful sky looking east.

I recomposed and faced a mountain and it's almost illuminated peaks. The foreground interest was still dominated by the salt flats, but this time I chose to reposition my tripod higher up. This was my final image in Death Valley.
