Credit & Copyright: Scott C. Taylor from San Francisco, CA Sunrise in the Valley of Death:"This photo was taken in late November 2008 in Badwater Basin, at 282
feet below sea level, its the lowest point in the Western Hemisphere.
Shot with a tripod mounted Nikon FM2, and Fuji Velvia 100 film.
We left San Francisco in the late afternoon and drove 12 hours though
the night to get here. Arrived at Badwater Basin around 4am, parked
the car, and carried gear about 2 miles out into the basin. After
setting up camp, we waited in total silence and darkness for the sun
to rise, and when dawn finally came, it was beautiful, and very
surreal, as if we'd been transported to another planet."
