We met at 5:00 am and had a very short 1.5 mile drive to Cotton Ball Basin.
This area, part of the large Salt Pan of Death Valley, is fed by few by
small underground springs. The Panamint Range is the mountain range to the
west in most of the pictures.
We walked about .5 to .75 miles from the road to the beginning of the salt
pan area. From there you could walk for several miles exploring for possible
subject matter. We began photographing before sunrise and spent about two
hours making pictures. This is an area I have never visited before and
certainly did not realize the potential the area offers. I will certainly be
back to photograph this area again.
