Title: Last Light

Location: The Racetrack - Death Valley National Park, California

Travel Notes: I hardly need motivation to get out of the truck: 2 hours and 27 miles of dirt road is reason enough. But in this case, I need to get out, and now. Chance finds me here at Death Valley's Racetrack with optimal photographic conditions. The sun is just an inch away from setting. The lakebed is a labyrinth of black cracks branching as far as the eye can see. With no time to spare I grab my camera gear and run. Like an arrow, I fly and stop just as abruptly. It is time to shoot because I see what I want to see. With shadows encroaching I capture the last light of the day, the year, the millennium.
