Sunset Over Death Valley

Sunset Over Death ValleyThis is a panorama of three HDR shots I took during a trip to Death Valley National Park.  This shot was taken just off the side of the road several miles south of Badwater Basin.  When I go on trips I try to avoid returning the way I came, which is how I got this shot.  To get to Death Valley from Las Vegas involves traveling into and through Pahrump to access Bell Vista which leads you to Death Valley.  After a day of hiking, I chose to leave by traveling south on Badwater Road which turns into CA-178 which leads to Pahrump.  Along the way the clouds and the setting sun combined to create what you see here.  Unable to resist, I pulled over, unpacked my tripod, and shot until the best light was completely gone.
