    We finally got a car with AWD and high clearance, so we headed off to Death Valley, naturally. First stop, cracks. All comments welcome!

    Very nice composition here. I like the way the large circle of cracks narrow into a line that leads to the mountains in the distance.

    The linked potholes are interesting down in front. Nicely seen.

    Well done. Focus stack or TS lens?

    This is super cool Tim! I really like the cracks in this, I have got to find me some cracks the next time I am in DV.

    And grats on getting the 4x4 with high clearance, it will really open up more possibilities for you.

    This is really interesting, Tim. Where was this image shot?

    Thanks for commenting Ben, Alan, Jim^2, and Doug!

    Jim: This is a 3 image focus stack. I thought about using the 17mm TS, but there weren't movement issues so I decided on a slightly higher, slightly narrower angle of view to keep some of the leading line visible.

    Doug: This is on the playa in Panamint Valley, though I also found cracks in Death Valley itself, and Eureka Valley.

    This is very cool. I've tried this kind of shot with poorer results!
