    An old talc mine lost in the dunes at Death Valley N.P. It's nice to find things like this untouched and left to the elements.

    It might be "untouched" but it definitely shows signs of aging in the desert elements. I like the dune behind the subject mine structures.

    Can you imagine building that and working there? This is very nice.

    Cool scene! The juxtaposition of the mine with the dune works well and I like the backlighting.
