These pics were taken at Zabriskie Point, in Death Valley. Pretty amazing huh? Death Valley is pretty amazing actually - apparently it's one of the hottest, driest, lowest places on earth (I was pretty glad we were there in the cool season, I imagine it would be almost unbearable in Summer). There's peaks and troughs and giant salt plains; there's sand and stone of all colours and mighty, ferocious winds. And apparently some scenes from the original Star Wars were filmed there. Awesome.
With all these wonderful natural patterns around me, I couldn't resist taking a few black and white shots. I think Death Valley looks pretty great sans colour, don't you?
