How old are you?
If you aren't old enough, you missed the heyday of the TV show Death Valley Days, hosted at one time by none other than Ronald Reagan.
You may still be watching the syndicated reruns of this TV classic which aired from 1952-1975.
The lead in to the show featured the Twenty Mule Team wagons of the sponsor, which in earlier days carried the mineral frowhich was mined in Death Valley. This is one of those wagons.
And D is for Death Valley, which we visited in November of 2009.
The lowest place in the US and overall the hottest, temperatures top 120º F. many days of the summer. That makes November a good time to visit...
...whne you may even find a bit of water for a reflection shot.
It was difficult gong through the Death Valley photos to find just a few. Death Valley is a place that is both difficult and extremely exciting for photography. In the bright of the day ,colors can be washed out and a picture would be very flat.
But when the sun is low on the horizon and the shadows come out, the colors come to life.
