Salt Flats at Badwater - Death Valley

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 17 March 2011 in Landscape & Rural.

Here, back by popular demand, is my lovely wife of 43 years, Barbara.
However, I also have another motive, here: This view, and the inclusion of people, lends a much better perspective of the enormity of the entire salt flats. Those other folks, way off in the distance really help with this I think.

This is indeed, the lowest point in North America - Badwater.

Tomorrow, we shall bid a final farewell to Death Valley. I do hope you have enjoyed this long series and I certainly hope that no one has tired of it. I definitely recommend a visit to Death Valley to anyone who has the time and the interest. It is an amazing place. Tomorrow, our final view.

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
; Earth Wind and Fire
