I photographed “Death Valley Salt Flats II,” near Badwater Basin, the lowest point in North America, at 282 ft (86 m) below sea level.
Death Valley is the most other-worldly place Jean and I have ever encountered, both on the ground and from aloft. Swirling “salt devils” arise from bone-white salt flats to pierce a cobalt sky, contrasting against shockingly vibrant mineral deposits tinting the surrounding cliffs and mountains with unnatural color.
Read my Flying Carpet column, “Birthday Flowers,” describing this particular trip. (This column first appeared in AOPA Flight Training magazine, June, 2005.)
“Death Valley Salt Flats II” debuts in Limited Edition 27″x40″ and 24″x36″ prints, and Open Editions of 16″x24″ and 10″x14″. Print prices start at $175. See detailed pricing and ordering information.
Like all my Views from the Flying Carpet, this photograph was collaboratively tuned for print with Master Photographic Printer Richard Jackson, who prints for the world’s finest photographers. Each individual print is meticulously crafted, mounted as appropriate, and packaged for shipping under Mr. Jackson’s supervision.

This is serious desolate country. If you want to take aerial photos and write about the photographed land, go to the northeast coast of North Carolina, near Nags Head, Manteo, etc. You will love it.
I have never been to that area Chuck and look forward to checking it out. Thanks much for the recommendation!
