During my trip through Death Valley I wanted to capture the sunrise at Zabriskie Point.
I was up at 5:30, had a beautiful morning sky, with Venus still high in the sky, and the Big Dipper in a very unfamiliar rotation (see the last photo). The temperature was only 6C, which was kind of chilly as I was wearing only shorts and T-shirt.
The sunrise was a fantastic display of colors and shadows, which is impossible to capture on camera. Below are a couple of the shots from this morning.
(1/50s, F8, ISO200, 28mm – Lens 28-70F2.8)
(1/80s, F8, ISO100, 11mm – Lens 11-18)
Below is the first shot this morning, which shows Venus and the Big Dipper.
