Sand everywhere :: 04.14.04 :: california : canon 1ds : death valley :

eurekadunes1.jpg
a spot I have to go back to. eureka dunes is in the northern part of death valley park, in the valley west of the main valley generally known as death valley. it is isolated, off several miles of unpaved roads and 4 wheel drive roads and incredibly amazing. next time i am camping here and saying goodbye to the motel accomodations.

am now 2 1/2 weeks into the new job. yahoo! is a great place to work and i am really glad i decided to make this change. incredibly busy already as i am trying to jump in feet first. and I started here just in time for a stock split and a new advertising campaign. good stuff!

driving north :: 04.11.04 :: california : canon 1ds : death valley :

northroad.jpg
i drove out of death valley the northern way. the way across unpaved roads and up past ubhebe crater. this took a couple of hours but was incredible as the landscape subtly changed. the road not only headed north but gradually rose in elevation as well so the temperatures were much more pleasant.

driving north toward ubehebe crater, the landscape starts to support more traditional desert flora, including this really interesting cactus.

20 mule canyon mud :: 04. 5.04 :: california : canon 1ds : death valley :

20mulemud.jpg
thank god that it was warm and dry. i can only imagine what this place is like when there is rain and the mud moves. 20 mule canyon is a really interesting place to drive through and explore. very monochromatic and the cool images come when you stop and spend time looking closely.

leftover borax :: 04. 3.04 :: california : canon 1ds : death valley :

borax.jpg
on my trip to death valley, i explored the west side road around badwater. this included a stop to check out the remains of an old borax mound from an abandoned refining operation. pretty weird stuff.

the start of spring :: 04. 1.04 :: california : canon 1ds : death valley :

wildflowers.jpg
the wildflowers have started in death valley. this was shot coming around the bend from badwater and the whole sweep of the slope was covered in these intensely bright yellow flowers. I expect that as the spring progresses others will come along as well. i saw purple and pink flowers too, but not in the numbers of these.

Eureka Dunes :: 03.30.04 :: california : canon 1ds : death valley :

EurekaDunes_sm.jpg
(click to popup a larger version) a panorama I spliced together of the Eureka Dunes in the northern part of Death Valley. This is shot from about a mile away. I spent the better part of last week there exploring the desert, shooting with the 1ds camera and 4w driving on really cool roads. As usual, not enough time - midday isn't the best time to visit the dunes for shooting. More images to come this weekend.

death valley hills
death valley hills :: february 27 2003

after spending 5 days down in death valley with cameras and fellow photographers, i have decided to take a break from this site to focus time on the craft of photography and on refining my photo portfolio (not online). i'm sure i'll be back after a rest and some creative rejuvenation.
