Badwater Basin by Moonlight

Badwater Basin by Moonlight

Death Valley National Park's Badwater Basin lies at an elevation of 282 feet below sea level, making it one of the lowest above-ground points on Earth. Unusual freeze-thaw and evaporation cycles cause the formation of the hexagonal salt formations seen in the foreground of this photo. I took this photo at night, when the flats were illuminated by a nearly full moon.

Available in the following sizes (Rectangle B): 12x8, 18x12, 24x16, 30x20, 36x24, 45x30, 60x40.
