After being out most of the night wandering around in the wilderness I made it back to Zabriskie Point for the sunrise. This was a “before the coffee” morning. The trellis erosion makes for beautiful patterns over geologic formations full of boron and volcanic ash. I would guess because of the short walk from the parking lot to the overlook, Zabriskie Point is one of the most photographed viewpoints in Death Valley. This is an HDR image processed from 5 exposures in Photomatix. I wanted some punch in the color of the landscape but I had to be careful about over saturating the clouds. I ended up blending the 0EV image of the clouds back into the HDR image.
