Updated 3/15/14- My favorite Death Valley, California images are done and posted. Going there was a great experience. It is considered one of the hottest and driest places on Earth. Not while I was there! It was cold and rained non-stop almost every day. It snowed in the mountains. We wore winter coats to stay warm.
Most of my images were taken from the cargo area of a 2013 Town & Country van specially equipped so I could take my HDR images from inside the van while my wife drove. I had a tripod mounted to the floor and used HDR to get the images most of the time.
