The mud and salt formations from last year are no more. Floods in November appear to have disovled most areas in the basin. This area is along the West Side Road.

Cottonball Basin Pools
First time exploring this area of DV. The water table is high enough now for springs to feed large shallow pools in the salt flats creating a great opportunity for interesting reflections.
Zabriskie Point Moonset
Full moon setting behind the Panament Range shortly before sunrise.
Mesquite Dunes at Sunset
This is the lower area of dunes just to the south of the main complex. I prefer it because there is a lot less foot traffic to deal with. This evening we were pleasantly suprised by a spectacular sunset.
Mesquite Dunes at Sunrise
A beautiful morning at the lower dunes we were shooting on the previous evening. No clouds this time but great light nonetheless.
