    I went to Death Valley at the end of March. Well, I actually more drove through it. lol. I started in Truckee and took the 395 down to Death Valley and then went to Las Vegas. It's a really scenic route. Anyways, I want to get some C&C from you guys since you guys are the best at giving comments.

    This was not at Death Valley, but pretty cool to see. It was the on the way to Death Valley off of HWY 395. This place is called Owens Valley.The mountains on either side (including Mount Whitney) reach above 14,000 feet (4,267.2 m) in elevation, while the floor of the Owens Valley is at 4,000 feet (1,219.2 m), making the valley one of the deepest in the United States.

    Pretty cool, man. Those panos give me ideas...I'm driving from NY to Cali this summer. I like the perspective on those people who are in the distance, and the layers of grass, sand and rock work well.

    i like your "the thinker" pose in 3.

    pretty much all your shots have the perspective of someone standing up normally.

    Which lends a p&s feel to the composition/framing of the pics.

    panos are nice though, 20 is your best composed, best pic.

    Must be hard to do photography combined with a full day of hiking thru death valley. Dont take this the wrong way, but most pics have the feeling of you stopping for 30 sec, snapping, and then running to catch up with your buds. :dunno:

    Thanks for the comments guys. For the angle shots there is only two that are angled... 1 is angled so much, if I fix it looks like shit... All the other horizons are pretty much fixed. Like 4, the land is going a down slope, I don't if you notice the rock is already leaning to the right and the land is slant counter clock wise... lol. Johan, you are pretty much right on the money. It wasn't even a full day. I probably spent 3-4 hours in Death Valley and what ever I saw off of HWY 190. I left Truckee, CA at 8am and got to Death Valley at 1pm and then arrived at Las Vegas at 6pm. I didn't think Death Valley was going to be this pretty. Next time I'm going to spend a how weekend.
    Daq, I hope you have A/C when you go in June. DV gets above 110 degrees and it is dry as fuck out there, expect noise bleeds from hell. lol. It was around the mid 80's when I went.

    A little strobist action camera left would've made this image jump more, and made you stand out.
