Devil's Golf Course, Death Valley, California

Death Valley is one of those places that offers an endless assortment of scenes, changing with the light, weather and season.  In this picture, digital tools enabled me to edit different elements to show the scene as it appeared to my eye.  The sun was disappearing behind layers of clouds, while the overcast gave this rugged terrain an even light.  I processed the top and bottom areas separately, using Bridge and Photoshop to enhance the color and contrast.  The picture suggests what a harsh and unforgiving place the valley can be.
