Zabriskie Point

Death Valley, CA


Death Valley provides some of the most remarkable shapes, colors, and hues you can find in the American Southwest. Zabriskie Point is no exception. For this reason, sunrise at Zabriskie Point is one of the most popular photographic spots in Death Valley. This iconic spot is a must when visiting Death Valley, as it is easy to get to and requires only a short walk to witness a truly amazing sunrise.

The areas around Zabriskie Point looks like you are on another planet, with maze-like ridges painted with yellows, chocolate browns, pinks, greens, and blues. To top it off, there is a shark fin triangular-shaped point known as Manly Beacon in the center. It is a great place for both wide-angle vistas and compression abstracts.
