Death Valley | When the Street is Badlands

Unmediated candid photography can be made in any setting, not just an urban context. Any public space will do. Here, I found the candid moment in the unearthly badlands of Zabriskie Point in Death Valley.

Zabriskie Point:  Keepsake Pose on the Badlands

Can anyone explain the meaning behind the position held by these people for their memento photograph?

After holding still for a photograph, with one leg behind them as if gliding on ice skates, the tourists turned around and continued walking the ridge of a steep slope. The earth beneath them was very firm; as if they were walking on a mountain of conglomerate cement.
