Photo Of The Day By Harry Lichtman

Today’s Photo of the Day is “Death Valley Rains” by Harry Lichtman. Location: Death Valley National Park, California.

Rains are pretty rare in Death Valley, occurring about 20 days per year,” explains Lichtman. “I was fortunate to be among the swirling sands during one of these events. Dry and wet sand created different colors, and I use the classic curve of this dune to bring the viewer through the image to the rain beyond.”
