Description

When I arrived at Badwater Basin for my planned sunset shoot, I was disappointed to find that the salt flats were much more of a muddy tone that the clean white photographic tone I was hoping for. However, I was excited to see what appeared to be a dramatic and colorful sunset sky developing. I quickly set up and found a composition that included the drama. Using several exposure combinations, I continued to shoot until the light had all but disappeared.
