Life Reflected in the Valley of Death

On this morning, Death Valley was alive, no sign of death anywhere. Quite the opposite in fact. Signs of life everywhere, causing me to dance a happy dance. And dance I did!



fresh rain in the desert
mirrors formed
life reflected in the valley of death

    Great image! I love the little sense of motion in the clouds and the great reflection. Didn’t see the Haiku till I scrolled down. Great….who knew you were a poet too 🙂

      I’m not sure Poet fits, but I try! Another Nancy influence.

    I like how there are many different “layers” to view. The sky, mountains, desert and the water. Just beautiful!!

    John: How unique a shot of Death Valley is that? I’m wondering if you planned to be there after a storm or was it seredipity? Wonderful image!!!

      Thanks Bill. Gosh, I wish I could say I planned it. All I planned was to be there and accept what was given!

    My new favorite place. Nice photograph. It’s always a blessing to have some nice clouds in the valley.
