Having scouted out the location earlier in the day, we returned for a spectacular sunset. Once the sun descended beyond the Panamint Range, the light began to get interesting.
The light really exploded at the end in a symphony of red and pink.
Before departing I turned the camera towards the symmetrical reflection of Telescope Peak after all the red had faded in the sunset.
This was a fantastic conclusion to the first day of my first visit to Death Valley in over a year. I slept soundly knowing that amazing images would await me the following morning as well as we returned to the same place we started with.
