Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Linda Norvelle

The insignificance of man vs. nature is highlighted by this photographer facing the magnificent geological formations along the 20 mule team canyon in Death Valley. Even here, in a place as inhospitable as Death Valley, Mother Nature can put on a display of grandeur and might, a humbling experience indeed.

Location: 20 Mule Team Canyon, Death Valley, Ca. USA
