Badlands are one of my favorite subjects to photograph. I enjoy seeing the various textures, soft colors, and unique formations with in the badlands landscape. The badlands of Death Valley National Park are no different. Badlands are a prime example of how erosion shapes the Earth's surface. The combination of soft sedimentary rocks and water flow causes intricate network of gullies, ridges, and striated spires. Water entering the system causes the soil to weaken; hence, it starts its journey down the slope. This process happens over a period of time. Water carves away the sediment and loose rocks which results in the formation of canyon walls, gullies and other stunning features within the badlands.
