Description

While Death Valley National Park is known for stark, monochrome views, its traditional Shoshone name, Tümpisa (or "Rock Paint" in English) implies a far greater variety of colors, if we just look for them. After a long drive, a short night and a predawn hike, sunrise offered an opportunity to view and capture some of these colors. This photograph of blooming Mesquite plants was taken at the Mesquite Flat sand dunes, approximately 20 miles from the small village of Furnace Creek, California.
