Once a beautiful compostion. From this high POV. Looking over the salt flats. Then up to the mountains with the snow just catching the sun. Interestin reading about the Alluvial fans . TFS.

I have driven across Death Valley with a 1963 Pontiac and no air conditioning..I think I remember it being about 120 that day....one of the worst and most scary days of my life in driving...
Your image brings me some memories of the salt Lake Flats...just in appearance though and from a distance....I am afraid of spiders, but I can look at images of them...but I don't like the real desert at all..and it is even hard for me to look at the image...serious....not sure why..perhaps because I am 180 degrees opposite..I love mountains, trees, streams and such...I'll leave the hot and dry to Jane Magen:-) good shot techincally...

Very beautiful landscape picture; great POV and composition, very good DOF (with f/10!), nice colours. I like the composition of high bank on back and front and the sharp details that seem to start right from the front and continue forever to the mountains. I knew that 24-70mm L lens is excellent, now it looks even better.

I learn something from you with every picture you post. I will admit to my ignorance - I never knew what an alluvial fan was. I understand now thanks to your descripiton and clear example. I've never been to Death Valley even though it is in my neighbor state so really enjoy seeing the salt flats and wonderful mountains.

Hi Big Brother James, an excellent landscape capture of these alluvial fans at the base of the mountains. Great details and very informative notes too.
TFS and cheers,
Splendid image James it makes me wish I had taken the time to go there when we were so close. Great work, thank you for sharing.
A grand view of Death Valley in its most impressive aspect, James. You have chosen the perfect point of view for showing us not only the salt plain but also those alluvial fans at the base of the mountains opposite you. There must be some below where you stand, I guess.
This is a great image you took more than two years ago.
Thanks and regards.
PS: Sorry for being irregular on TN; leaving the current job and busy winding up.

Great capture with very good details of this deadly landscape.
I like your DOF showing all details of both alluvial fans, white peaks and white salted pan.
I also appreciate the quality of your notes

A wonderful photo of such an amazing subject. This is what I like in your shots, there's always a subject that looks great, has some very interesting facts about and most of all no one else will show it, they are always some special locations. We can always learn much from your posts. Never heard about these fans nor how they become. So TFS and for the notes ;)

What a stunning vista. This top down view on the salt flats gives it a perfect idea of the huge size. But, I really like the view on the mountain. The dry river beds/flows are amazing and probably does give an indication of how it once was. The repetition of the white of the snow is great.
