They're palm trees.
The biggest are maybe 30 feet tall?

Actually...no.
This is just one odd little camp ground area.

I think the black and white is what really makes it beautiful though, because all the distracting colors are eliminated, and the contrast and layout (which are very good) come through.

:s I haven't been to Death Valley, but its the lowest place on Earth is it not?

Do the trees naturally look like that, or is that photomanip...?
I've always wanted to go to Death Valley... closest I've ever gotten was the Bonneville Salt Flats, and there are NO trees out there. ;)

Ironic: the living found in a place called death. It just goes to show that even in the midst of death there is life. :thumbsup:

This photo is quite beautiful. The composition is very well thought out. The angles of the palm trunks move the eye from the top middle of the photo, down along the trunks to their end. Very nice! :D :+fav:
