Death Valley NP | Classic Zabriskie Point

At Death Valley, one of the popular stops is the trail leading to a view of Zabriskie Point. Today I share two versions of the view of this classic landscape.

Zabriskie Point | Classic View With Tourists

On the day we went to see it, the weather was postcard perfect. Admirers were forced to park vehicles along the main roadway. The density of visitors was greater than the limits of the parking lot and there is no overflow lot. It was unexpected mayhem. With the presence of so many tourists, I was able to photograph the site including humans for scale. Frankly, I think the inclusion of the people enhances the story of the image.

Classic View – No People

When I moved further into the scene it was possible to capture the “classic” postcard view, sans human.

Which version do you prefer? Why?
