A few weeks ago, I got to shuttle myself out to Death Valley National Park for the Super Bloom. The timing was such that I had to be there President’s Day weekend… so it was crowded and a bit before the super bloom’s peak. Given the once-in-a-lifetime nature of this event, I wasn’t going to be picky so I took my opportunity.
So I bet you’re expecting to see lots of flower shots, huh?
In terms of satisfying images, the super bloom ended up being a footnote. The crowds, wind, and haze made flower shots really difficult during my time there. I will say the being there was astounding, even if my resulting images don’t reflect the epic nature of the super bloom event.
Instead, I got into full-dork mode on infrared and historical photography in Rhyolite and Titus Canyon. And getting to meet up with my photography buddy, Steve Zigler, wasn’t too shabby either. He even made me coffee. 🙂
With that, here’s a little slideshow of my whirlwind trip to Death Valley for the Super Bloom. Enjoy!
