This was the first evening of the trip to Death Valley I had for shooting and it was easily the best light of the entire time I spent there. There was a couple decent sunsets and sunrises afterwards, but it is nearly impossible to beat an absolutely nuclear evening like this. Badwater Basin offers plenty of compositional choices, but i had limited time to pick a foreground as it was a bit of a rush out. I had flown in to Las Vegas early the same day so it was a bit frantic to be having a "dress rehearsal" shoot during something like this!
