During our stay in Shoshone for our 2nd Death Valley Trip, at the end of February, we took a walk at the Amargosa River wetlands area. Now one has to consider the general desert environment to set the right expectations and not jump to immediate conclusions when thinking of “wetlands” here. :) If I’d apply my old German standards for the word “river” and “wetland”, this body of water would barely qualify as a small creek! :)
It’s hard to get a grip on the photos that I’ve made during our two Death Valley trips in February. It’s not just the sheer amount (a combined 800 exposures), it’s also the absolutely mind-blowing variety of subjects.
In my first post from our 2022 Death Valley Trip, I mentioned how at Death Valley, the landscape itself is the abstract. I found the best way to represent this was with the photos that I made from up high, at Dante’s View and Dante Peak*. A couple other locations and the views they offered allowed for similar “abstractions”.
It has been a bit quiet here lately — besides working “behind the scenes” on (re) building my photo archive, we’ve been out of town for a few days, visiting Death Valley National Park.
