A two day backpacking up to Mt. Whitney allowed me to capture the morning glow in the early morning of my second day of hiking. All my limbs were still stiff from the cold night and the physical exertion of the previous day. The light and warmth was welcome and gave me a foresight of what was still to be climbed to finally make it to the top of the 4,421 m (14,505 ft) tall mountain.

The image does not portrait Mt. Whitney itself as the summit is hidden just behind the rock to the right. Mt. Whitney is the tallest mountain in California and the highest peak in the contiguous US. The area is restricted and requires a hot contested permit to be accessed.

I lost count of how often I went to the so called Racetrack Playa located in the middle of Death Valley National Park. However, this time I chose a new route to access it. Instead of taking the ‘highway’ coming from Ubehebe Crater I thought it would be interesting to take the Lippincott Road over the Lippincott Pass. OH BOY, that was a crazy adventure which I most likely will not repeat! Everything went well, but I was sh****** my pants while driving up, upper and uppest and the trail was getting narrow, narrower and narrowest and steep, steeper and steepest. Once up at the pass there were six Jeeps lined up to get started to go down the same route I just came up. We were all most lucky that we met up at the pass and not some hundred meters below, because there is not wiggle room for any kind of passing, maneuvering, or turning around!

Once getting up to the ancient lake bed which makes the Racetrack the drive was forgotten as the famous sliding rocks and its trails were already waiting for us to show off. By the way, the mystery concerning what makes these rocks move is solved. Read here!

Image created at the Jumbo Rock Campground located in the heart of the Joshua Tree National Park.
The secret is to be there early afternoon to have your tripod and camera placed at the right spot way before the light gets right. The spot is tight and the composition is highly disputed at each sunset.

This image is a composite of three photographs as I had to use the software HeliconFocus for stacking to achieve focus throughout the entire image without using a small aperture. I intend to print this large for a photo show next year and diffraction resulting from a small aperture would have killed the prints quality.

Image was not done at the usual and popular South Tufa area, but more or less at the opposite side of the lake, on the North shore. The access is not that easy. First you drive on an endless dirt road and than you walk about 30 minutes to finally end up in a swampy area where you try dodging the deep treacherous spots, more or less not very successfully, to not end up knee deep in the salty foul smelling mud.
