Photo of the day: Zabriski by dusk

Zabriski by dusk, originally uploaded by The Bacher Family.
Our first evening in Death Valley, we drove up to Zabriski Point for the sunset. The colors were fabulous, though perhaps not as extraordinary as they are some nights; I shared my perch with only half a dozen or so other photographers. My favorite photo of the whole evening, in fact, was this one, taken as I walked back to the car. With the bright, warm colors of sunset below the horizon, the cool, dark colors of dusk set in, and the landscape looked so stark and beautiful that I had to set down my camera, still on the tripod, and snap a picture.
