Sunshine, heat, desert... It can be quite frightening not seeing anyone driving on these roads for hours. However, the landscape and the scenery is beautiful.
Today I attach a general description of the Death Valley National Park.

Death Valley is the lowest, driest and hottest valley in the United States. It is the location of the lowest elevation in North America at 85.5 m (282 ft) below sea level. It holds the record for the highest reliably reported temperature in the Western hemisphere (134 °F (56.7 °C) at Furnace Creek in 1913, as discussed below) - just short of the world's highest, which was 136 F (58 C) in El Aziza, Libya on Sept. 13, 1922. Located southeast of the Sierra Nevada range in the Great Basin and the Mojave Desert, it constitutes much of Death Valley National Park. It is mostly located in Inyo County, California. It runs north-south between the Amargosa Range to the east and the Panamint Range to the west; the Sylvania Mountains and the Owlshead Mountains form its northern and southern boundaries, respectively. It has an area of about 3,000 square miles (~7,800 km²).

Yes, this valley landscape looks really trist , but I prefer our green valleys in our "Odenwald" with our montains. Your image is ok, Kirstof.It shows perfectls the character of this part of our world.

Hi Kristof,
It looks like my backyard .. ;-)
I guess this is a typical american landscape. Isn't it. I've never been there, but saw this type of photo's now and then. Indeed very special (not really my taste).
I like the enormous amount of space in it. Really much depth. TFS.

Hello Kristof!
Beautiful photo, curious place. Congratulations.

hi Kristof,
Another beautiful landscape of the Death Valley in California, Excellent POV. and details, very well taken and nice note of the place in USA..
Well done.

Considering the heat haze Kristof good colour. An excellent POV, good use of the thirds and nice detail throughout. Wit the mountains it looks far more interesting than the 800 odd miles of the Nullabor Plain on mainland Australia. TFS,

what landscape!very good panorama and place
