Death Valley Junction


Death Valley Junction, CA

One of my favorite places to do photography is Death Valley. It is a most remarkable place with a ton of things to photograph. As you know if you are a regular reader I am a big fan of rust and decay and I was fortunate to find this old Borax mine in Death Valley Junction.  This locations is about 45 minutes from the park itself. I played with this image by shooting it with a P65+ then importing into my iPhone where I applied some effects then took it back to Capture One for some more adjustments. Just a little fun with an interesting image.

  2. Hi Kevin,

    Lovely image with a real illustrative appeal. Very clever treatment.


  3. It’s not a mine. Death Valley Junction was built in the 1920’s as the headquarters for US Borax. Later it became a five star hotel, and then owned by Marta Beckett who performs in the Amargosa Opera House. The mines were elsewhere. What you took a photo of was the “industrial” section. There used to be a railway back there along with many other buildings.
