Starting to look forward to this year's trip to Death Valley. Don't think I'll be going out to the Race Track this year. I want to explore some areas new to me.

Hope you enjoy, Bill




And they're off!

Nice shadows cast by the rocks. I was at DV a month ago, regrettably never made it to this spot. I was told the road is in really shape.

Very catchy title, Bill and a nice image. These have been the subject of some TV documentaries before. Wish I could remember what the conclusions were.

Thanks Douglas. I really was looking for a different view of these much photographed rocks. Glad you like it.

Great composition and tones! I would perhaps consider bumping up the contrast just a bit for a more emotive piece.

I love the race track. I finally made it down this year and it was just a fantastic place. Fred Miranda posted a shot this week and mentioned there were signs of man-made movement of the rocks. So its kind of a bum that there are people ruining this awesome place.

I'm sorry to hear that. I've also heard that some people steal the rocks, thinking they have some kind magical powers or something. It's an awesome place to visit. One of those must-see places that should be on everyone's list.

One of the best of the Racetrack I've seen, Bill.
The best collection of rocks I've seen, and they're aligned as though they ARE racing, and you got the light and shadows perfectly, and then topped if off with an excellent composition.


A quick word about the "mystery" of the moving rocks- partly in view of the fact that TV "Nature shows" have lately been doing their best to over-dramatize everything, almost to the point of turning real science into science fiction.
The best experts on the subject pretty much agree that at the high elevation of the racetrack, when winter nights can get well below freezing and extremely high (100mph) winds sometimes blow, AND the top layer of clay is moist and super slippery from recent rains in the surrounding mountains, THAT is when the rocks move. There is also the possibility that ice may sometimes be involved.
It's better said on "Wiki- DV racetrack." Click on the top offering.
The sliding rocks are really cool- for sure .

Thanks Charlie. I think if we ever discovered the real reason they move it would destroy the "mystery," and therefore the enchantment of this really wonderful place in Death Valley.
