Death valley detail

Death valley detail
This was taken near the volcanic caldera image I uploaded recently. I wanted to capture something which showed what much of the terrain in the valley is like and this relatively dense and repetitious area of scrubby grass seemed to do the job.

ADDENDUM: after a couple of the comments below (thanks for the pointers!) I should point out that, this being a more than slightly dry area (!), the grasses become evenly spaced as they're the survivors from the competition for the trivial amounts of water available. Also, this is another one which works best viewed large.

Locations for photography: Death Valley National Park, California
