In the third and final part of the Desolation Canyon “trilogy” 😅 I’m sharing intimate landscape and detail photos. To me, these show best what’s so charming about the desert, and canyon hikes in particular: there’s a myriad of little things to discover, at all times…
Lava Hill, Death Valley
I’m trying to keep up the pace with my blogging in a more documentary and trip-report style and this is the second entry from our recent Death Valley trip.
Fantastic Lava Beds Triptych
I guess at first sight, this is a pretty strange title for a blog post, but rest assured that I’m not actually that full of myself — whether the triptych is truly fantastic is not for me to say! 😅 It is made from detail photos of the Fantastic Lava Beds though, which we saw when we hiked Cinder Cone. :)
The Landscape As Abstract
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”.

Multiple Exposure Play
Creating abstract and experimental photographs, abusing the Exposure Fusion process to generate multiple exposure like images from stacks of similar exposures.
