Photographer's Note

The landscape in Death Valley look relatively plain from a distance with mostly brownish arid landscape, but there are many wonderful surprises when you are closer up. and many of the place are very surreal and almost not of this world.

This is our first stop at Death Valley on our recent trip in past weekend. We arrive just in time for sunset. Zabriskie Point is a part of Amargosa Range located east of Death Valley. its erosional landscape is composed of sediments from Furnace Creek Lake, which dried up 5 million years ago—long before Death Valley came into existence. It is surreal in many ways with it colorful geology and shape, but with such colorful sunset, it makes it seem even more surreal but beautiful.
