Death Valley Workshop Recap
Death Valley National Park in California typically lives up to it name. With an average rainfall of around 2" and average temperatures of 116 degrees in the summer, very little life is supported in the harsh climate. However, during the winter months temperatures cool making winter the ideal time to visit. On this workshop we were greeted with rain on the first couple of days. This gave the participants a unique chance to photograph the area with water. Badwater Basin, sitting 282' below sea level, turned into a shallow lake providing wonderful reflections of the sky above.

Zibriskie Point and Mesquite Flat dunes provided wonderful photographic opportunities. Unfortunately due to the rain, many roads were closed during the workshop including the famous Racetrack Playa known for the mysterious moving rocks. On my last day the road opened up and we made our way through Tea Kettle Junction to the playa. The northern section was still closed due to the rain but the southern section was dry enough to walk on.
