About Guided by the Moon
Death Valley, California, USA.
I never get over the beauty of Death Valley National Park. While to many it represents the extremes of what Mother Nature has to offer; to me it also represents a place of serenity. During daytime, Zabriskie Point is a merciless landscape. Usually it is extremely hot, with an unforgiving terrain.
On one of my trips I ended up driving from Las Vegas to Death Valley. I was aiming for a sunrise shot in Death Valley the morning after. I arrived quite late, so I decided to do some scouting, trying to find the best vantage point for my morning shoot. I got there at around 11pm, long after sunset.
What I found in front of me was a remarkable landscape at night, lit up by the full moon behind me. Although it might seem like this image was taken during daytime, it was shot at 11pm. The moon lit up the scene and created a surreal image of Zabriskie Point in Death Valley National Park. It is one of those evenings that will stay with me forever; guided by the moon.
