Big Dipper and Moonlight, Badwater, Death Valley

Posted by
Gary Hart (California, United States) on 15 February 2012 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

On our final night in Death Valley, I took last week's workshop group out to Badwater for a moonlight shoot. I'd never tried Badwater by moonlight, but it would be safe to say that this will become a regular feature of all future Death Valley workshops. I describe the night in more detail here.

superb capture - you used the moonlight to the maximum effect here and created a mysterious and surreal mood! the blue tone is fantastic and the texture in the foreground is great as well! by the way - a great article on the use of polarising filters on outdoor photographer website...
