Back From The Desert

Photo credits go to my wife today... she snapped this one while I was preoccupied with the sunrise at Zabriski Point in Death Valley, as you can see:)... me there on the left.
Death Valley has absolutely perfect weather this time of year with warm days and cool nights.. nothing too extreme and great for camping out under the stars. I managed to shoot some really good stuff but have not had much time to sort through and process anything yet. Also I have a paying studio project to get going on and I have to concentrate on that for a bit, so this is a little teaser for later.
I actually crossed paths with and got to meet Gaelyn, aka the Geogypsy, on Sunday.. I recognized her and her RV at Furnace Creek, so stopped to introduce myself and say hello. She has lots of pictures already posted of her adventures in the park last week, so stop over there and take a look.
On another note: Deb, author of Stroll Through Storyland, was kind enough to feature me as the subject of her "Internet Artisans" series this week, so a big thank you to her for that and please have a look if you get a few minutes. She grabbed some of her personal favorites from my blog posts over the past year to illustrate the interview and did a really nice job of putting it all together.

Thanks, Mark, for the blog-shout. Looks like there's a culture of nature photographers, taking beautiful images of our wonderful landscape! {:-Deb

Welcome home Mark. Was great to meet you in DV. After you pulled away I realized neither of us had taken a picture. The park was awesome and I have plenty more to post. Look forward to seeing your awesome captures. Just got home via Laughlin.

Hi Mark, Looks like it was a bit chilly there in the early morning. I bet Aki was shivering! Good job Aki! Looking forward to seeing some more of your shots Mark.

Simply amazing view with a lot of story behind this one.

Thanks for making my day so much more interesting than the flu I am suffering from
