Death Valley | San Diego PhotographerJune 13, 2011
Last time I did a Death Valley post it focused on the little mini shoot we did. This time I’m focusing on some of the photos I did that don’t have people in them. Since I have been there about a million times, I feel like I have photos of almost everything already, so this trip I didn’t take as many as I normally do.
On the way to Death Valley we drive through a little town called Trona and it always smells like rotten eggs. It is one of those places you don’t really want to stop and get out of the car, but I needed a picture.
We went to Inyo mine and hiked around for awhile. The kids had a great time but kept slipping on all the gravel so they decided it would be a better idea to play with their toys. While they were doing that I was able to sneak off and snap a few frames.
One of the days we were there we went over to Rhyolite to explore. This is one of those places that I have photographed countless times so this year I decided to shoot it with my lensbaby and a borrowed wide angle lens from a photographer friend who was with us. It was fun redoing a lot of the photos I had taken in the years past and giving them slightly different looks.
On the last evening, My friend and I took the kiddos out to Badwater to explore the saltflats. The kiddos didn’t really know what to think about it. I thought it was great.
