Death Valley is, in many ways, an out of this world environment, harsh, unforgiving if you take it too lightly, achingly beautiful - and mysterious. Racetrack Playa is one such place, famous for these 'sailing rocks' that move along the lake bed, leaving trails behind them as they advance a few inches or so each year. There is a warning as you enter the lake bed - to stay off if it should happen to be wet. Any footprints you might leave could last for 100 years.
I have seen other, more dramatic photographs of these rocks and the Racetrack. This, however, is one of my favorites - if you know my work, you know I like simple, occasionally minimal compositions.
