Death Valley National Park. Itâ€™s amazing what you find with a little wandering. And in Death Valley there is lots of space to wander. A photographer friend of mine hinted that these bizarre salt circles might be lurking out in the salt flats near salt creek, so early one morning a buddy and I set out for a wander. We meandered past reflective streams, furrowed cracks of earth, and baked salt pans. Then, out of nowhere, We stumbled upon these dots. As luck would have it the rising sun cast a nearly perfect nimbus across the haze of clouds to the east and created a beautiful symmetry to the scene. Taken in February, 2013.
