from the frost (racetrack playa, death valley)

My first taste of winter and I was ill prepared. Big thanks to David Thompson for letting me borrow his gloves. I would be typing this with stubs if it wasn't for him. Some random setbacks lead to this shot. Firstly, my camera attempted to off itself with my 14mm Samyang by hurling itself to the ground (tripod tipped over). There goes the Samyang. It still worked but the rings were really difficult to turn after doing an endo on the playa. Good thing I have my 17-40mm, right? I take it out of my frozen bag and the rear cap will not come off! The cap was from my sigma but I would have never expected this. Alright, what do I have left in my bag... oh, lets try the 24-105mm. It's not as wide as I would like so I basically shoot the rest of the morning doing vertoramas and I am kind of glad I did. I had already planned on doing a few of these so it worked out in the end in a strange way. I tried a few new things on this one, always trying to improve my processing. Hope it looks alright. Let me know what you think.
