Kingdom Skies by Jordan-Roberts Kingdom Skies by Jordan-Roberts
Jordan Roberts Photography
Death Valley National Park

This shot was last minute on our way to Badwater in Death Valley. We were greeted by an epic sunset of a sandstorm moving in over us. Earlier in the day we had been exploring some abandoned mines outside of the park when sunset time came around. This is taken of the southern Panamint Range south of Badwater in Death Valley.

What you're seeing is a sandstorm in the valley. The sand being blown upward is creating the multi-colored effect on the mountains (it's not HDR) and creates interesting luminosity around the ridge. Enjoy!

Surprising to see a desert-scape among the vast ocean-shots (though one could argue that the waves of the sand make it an ocean on its own). I must say that this is a plainly incredible photo, the light and many subtle contrasts are wonderful -- just wonderful.

What an amazing shot. The light is incredible. I've heard about the annual Badwater marathon and this really shows what those athletes endure. And I don't mean the beauty, I mean the harsh conditions.

Oh wow, fabulous! I wouldn't cope with the heat. I live in Perth, Australia and we have fairly hot summers with frequent temperatures around 100F and sometimes a bit higher but I don't go outside running on those days :faint:
