Before my trip to Death Valley, Jaki Good Miller and I visited Valley of Fire State Park about an hour north of Las Vegas. The red sandstone formations in this park conjure up what I think Mars might look like if I ever visited (it is not called the Red Planet for nothing). The Valley of Fire was formed from shifting sand dunes 150 million years ago. Whether on Mars or millions of years ago, I doubt there would be an asphalt road leading through the landscape. Having shot so many times with Jeff Clow, a master of road shots, I know a great one when I see one. This is one of my favorite ones as it curves through the rock formation, seems to disappear, and then reappears in the distance in the upper right before it turns left creating a vanishing point.
