Middle of Nowhere  
I just got back from one of those awesome places on Earth! "Middle of nowhere" would be a pretty accurate description.

That is me at daybreak on a Playa - the flattest of all natural surfaces.

More later...

That looks so amazing. I often think your photos reflect incredible experiences, but this one is outstanding.
(I'm surprising myself saying this as I love the wildlife photos - don't know what's got me about this one.)

I think that is one of the most amazing pictures I have ever seen. The blue, the patterns, everything. Where is that, anyway? I think you should submit this one in any photograpy contest--it's simply fantastic!

It is the Racetrack Playa in Death Valley National Park.

OK, now I have to go and google "playa" and find out more! But nice pic...AU...As Usual!

You could yahoo playa as well... :)

Let me guess, Death Valley or Nevada?

Boss, I suspect this photo will get you some prizes :). Early morning shot? Asking because of the blue hue.

Were you able to see those "sailing stones"? What amazing things there are in Nature!
Yathinyathin on February 20th, 2008 12:14 am (UTC)
Yep, have tons of pictures of the mysterious moving rocks -- an amazing, inaccessible part of earth it is! :)

Ok...then, eagerly awaiting the pictures. How nice to have a friend experiencing things and sharing them through words and such fantastic visuals. It's the next best thing to experiencing it oneself.
