Striped Butte and Road, 2006. Death Valley National Park, California

Striped Butte and Road, 2006. Death Valley National Park, California

On a 4 wheel drive backcountry journey in my 1970 Ford Bronco, I visited Butte Valley in the high Panamint Mountain range of Death Valley National Park. It had been years since I visited this isolated and photogenic area and yet the passage of time seemed to make this trip better than I anticipated. It is a very long, slow jeep road that leads to Striped Butte, and this was an exceptional day in terms of rapidly changing storm clouds. This photograph of Striped Butte is taken very near Anvil Spring, where the Geologist's Cabin is located. I made several 4x5 negatives, each with different light, shadow and cloud interplays. I chose this negative because the intensity of sunlight on Striped Butte seems to almost glow when set against the gentle grays of the surrounding terrain. A localized Highlight Mask was used to further enhance the brilliant sunlight on the butte.
