The Scales of the Serpent


This is an image from my trip to death valley back in early march. I seemed to have overlooked this one, and ironically, it is now one of my favorite images from the trip. My mom and I got up at 4:30AM (after camping in our car in the parking lot) and hiked out into the desert. We stumbled across these amazing rock formations in the valley of one of the dunes. This shot was taken about 30-45 minutes before sunrise, but the glow of the sun is still very evident. I was also lucky enough to capture a few stars in the upper left hand corner. I want to thank my Mom again for being such a trooper in Death Valley, I do not think that too many moms would car camp in death valley for a week! :) Thanks Mom!
