“Death Valley Salt Flats II”

Views from the Flying Carpet Fine Art Print series

DeathValleySaltFlats-II_0303e-HSmw1200Greg photographed “Death Valley Salt Flats II,” near Badwater Basin, the lowest point in North America, at 282 ft (86 m) below sea level. (Click photo to see a larger image.)

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.
