We’re here at bad water, Death Valley. We just walked out from the parking lot about a, probably half a mile into the salt flat here, and the first two thirds of this little hike is pretty flat. The trails trampled everything down. Once you get out pass the end, it just really all these crystals emerged, get a real nice contrast of all these shapes against the sky out here. Pretty, pretty simple, pretty stark, but it’s a very unusual and it’s a pretty much a signature Death Valley situation. And what we’ve got set up here is a tripod with a super wide lens. I got the 11 to 18 camera lens at 11 millimeters, with a polarizer and a lens shade. Coz we’re shooting almost directly into this sun that’s still fairly low in the sky. And with this wide lens, it’s making this mosaic tile patterns look huge and really three dimensional against that real minimal mountain range in the background there. And it makes the mountains look like they’re miles away. So they get that distortion of a typical wide angled lens, yet we don’t have any problems with any vertical lines here to deal with. So I can actually tip this camera down and it changes a little bit of a shape of the patterns of the ground but it doesn’t matter coz you don’t know. You couldn’t ever do this with architectural situation in a city or with trees coz you actually get all the bowing and the converging lines. But out here we have nothing to reference to except just random patterns. It’s perfect. So, this is an excellent place to use a wide angled lens. Self timer going. We’ve got 16, that is 60th with a polarizer and check it out here. Looks nice. Histogram indicates that even though there’s a lot of white in the scene, we’re still holding some of that highlight information and should be perfect.
