Taken at the Racetrack in Death Valley National Park. This location is simply SUPERB. A must see for any nature photographer. Hers I used a Warming Polarizer and a 2 stop ND Grad Filter

i am stunned. I love these type of photos but most will not take them because they are so "lonely"
I love it, great subject, great POV.

Grand! Excellent shot, Pat! This is unbelievable! A perfect shot! I don't think anything has to be changed/edited here! I agree with what you said, it's simply SUPERB! Thanks for sharing!

Great photo! Really good colour contrast between the top and the bottom of this photo. Fantastic clarity throughout and a very clear message. Did you put the stick there?

Simply fantastic. Great and unusual patterns lead to the warmly and beautifully lit mountains. You have finished it perfectly by having the twig in the foreground. Great work.
Did you use the CanonScan FS4000US for this one?

Hi Pat, je trouve que la photographie a des teintes un peu extraordinaire, c'est très beau, jouerais-tu avec la saturation des couleurs ou l'effet n'est du qu'au filtre polarisant. Amitié/jr
dolin (7369) 2005-02-07 6:04
un seul mot à dire : WAOUH !!!
Que dire de plus...c'est tout simplement PARFAIT

excellent cadrage and POV
MichaelTrezzi (3368) 2005-10-29 3:25
Hi Pat, Fantastic pic. Congratullations. Like the combination of the cold foreground with the warmth of the bacground. Could you tell me if it was sunrise or sunset. Thanks for sharing. Cheers, Michael
leiju (1697) 2006-05-05 6:43
Oh wow, this is an amazing picture. Absolutely spot on on everything. Amazing. Breath taking. Mind blowing.
There is nothing more to say.
Voltri (1777) 2006-05-05 7:15
Astonishing photo! I like the idea of having this dry clay filling 80% of frame space - it looks very original and interesting.
Johny (142) 2006-05-05 7:30
Hi Pat.Great composition and coloros too.AS i always say slide is the best, real colors. Once dog lover always dog lover. Great job Pat .Congratulation.
rajhema (1873) 2006-07-31 16:27
it became my favourite the moment I saw this picture Pat. The contrast in the landscape is dramatic and awesome. the light ends perfectly at the foot of hills seems caused just for you. A masterpiece. Picture is sharp, colorful and very dramatic one.
lesfilous (365) 2006-07-31 16:32
Yeah... beautiful work with this polarizer !
I dream to do this travel too !
I like contrast between soft color of the ground and saturated colors of the mountain and the sky.
SampraS (619) 2007-01-14 16:10
That is undoubtly a great picture!
Superb POV, and well framed
It is also exreamly sharp !!
schekerli (234) 2007-01-14 16:36
Hey Pat! This is wonderful.
My judgement of quality slides against digital chips is also approved.It's unbetable.
Splendid composition.simply a masterwork.
Nice to know you!
VincentFavre (148) 2007-07-05 17:03

Bravo et merci
Macpil (6) 2007-09-07 9:49
Cette photo est superbe. La compositon est parfaite avec cette branche qui vient rompre l'uniformité du sol. Les contrastes sont maîtrisés à la perfection. Un endroit presque irréel.
tmx (1324) 2007-11-17 3:44
Hi at, superb composition. I also need to use those Grad filters. really cool colours and the whole PoV. I'm impressed, although I've been there in Death Valley and saw how it all looks like. cheers

Absolutely breathtaking! I am amazed.

Simply put....this is an exceptional photograph. The choice of filtering, POV, and exposure work together to create a shot that others could only wish for.
