    We got up early to watch the moonset over cottonball basin in the Death Valley National Park. The landscape is very unique and fragile because of delicate salt formations. Watching these formations under moonlight transports one to a world where stories of dragons, kings and unicorns come to life.

    I feel like I'm on the surface of the moon or another planet. Waking up early was a great call to capture an image like this. The colors in the background are beautiful and the hint of light hitting the landscape is a great added touch.
