“To be a photographer, one must photograph. No amount of book learning, no checklist of seminars attended, can substitute for the simple act of making pictures. Experience is the best teacher of all. And for that, there are no guarantees that one will become an artist. Only the journey matters…”  Harry Callahan

Viva Las Vegas . . . Day Two.   We drove in a caravan out to Death Valley today.  We spent most of the afternoon exploring Rhyolite, a small ghost town on the edge of Death Valley.  I could have spent the entire day there – it was that interesting.  There were old buildings and rail cars, and a very eclectic Museum with very interesting statues and artifacts.  It’s really a Photographers paradise.  We spread from one end of the site to the other . . . all immersed in our own creative juices attempting to put our own unique spin on what we were documenting here.  We didn’t actually make it in to Death Valley because we ran out of time . . . and it was very cold and overcast by time nightfall came.  Our intention was to photograph the sunset, and then get some star trails . . . but that wasn’t going to happen with an overcast sky.  Oh well . . . we left Rhyolite feeling very pleased with ourselves and wishing we’d had more time there!  

This photo was taken in an old abandoned cabin.  I applied some HDR processing, and tweaked a bit more in Photoshop.
