Racing Rock - Death Valley by Inge Johnsson

Photographic Prints

Available to buy on…

Moving rock on the “Racetrack” in Death Valley. The consensus seems to be that these rocks glide slowly when there are strong winds while the playa is wet and slippery.

    That sun in the backdrop is so perfectly placed.
    Fantastic capture. As beautiful and professional as they get.

  • Peter, thank you very much! This is a very strange but inspiring place indeed.

    An absolutly inspiring image! the DOF is Fantastic, and the inclusion of the sun without really overexposure shows just how well you composed and controled this wonderful image. Please think about submitting it to the Style! Class! Elegance! Excellence! group

  • Andrew, thanks again! Yes, I waited for the sun to be just above that ridge so that a small aperture would render it with “sunbursts”. And I will definitely check out that group tonight.

    I love the thought and care you put into preparing for this shot. Did you get there before hand to plan for the direction of the sunrise/set or was it just a happy coincidence?
    Either way – brilliant shot!!
    We’ll never know how wind moves those rocks, will we?

  • Well, I was there the whole afternoon so I did have a pretty good idea where the sun would set. I think the general consensus is that the rocks are moved by strong winds when the playa is wet and muddy, but I find that a little hard to imagine; it is probably true though. Thnaks for your praise!
