March 2009 Death Valley Trip

In march we made a trip to Death Valley. In the day there were numerous things to see and do, and at night an amazing amount of stars came out as it is one of the darkest places around. All of my nighttime photography attempts failed, however, it did inspire me to get back into simply looking upwards at night.
