Picture Story

This image was taken in Badwater Basin in Death Valley during sunset in February. We walked out about a mile into the dry playa, and were caught in a light rainstorm, facing west, shooting an amazing ray of light slicing through the clouds. I turned around to grab a towel in my bag, looked up only to find an amazing light show refracting off of rain falling behind me. Ultimately. what I thought was going to be the shot of a lifetime ended up being two completely different shots from the same spot, just looking in opposite directions. This was the first time I learned the lesson to always turn around and see what is happening behind me.
