As we headed out of Furnace Creek in Death Valley on Route 190 Paul Reiffer (our workshop host and professional photographer) pulled the car over to the side of the road. I been looking out of the side window thinking about the challenges to come and had not thought of looking behind us. Paul had and when we jumped out of the car it quickly became evident why.
This is a classic view looking back down the road and it is one that I have seen a hundred times. The difference this time was that it was my chance to try to go one step further. So, with each of us watching the traffic whilst we each took our turn at capturing this iconic image, I set about getting my interpretation between cars, trucks and those rolling 18 wheel monsters that were coming over the rise a few hundred yards in the opposite direction to the image.
Well, it looks like I was not the only person to like my interpretation of the view. Gurushots must have hundreds, if not thousands, of images similar to this on their database, but it is my image (just one of 38) that has been used to provide an example of getting from point a to point b. There are some wonderful images that have been used in the article and I’m proud to have yet another of my images used in this manner.
