Challenge #102 in the The Art Director series. Hosted by jezsik.
Challenge has finished
A publisher requires a photograph for the dust sleeve of a hardcover book. The book is a sort of philosophical essay (or rambling musings as the editor jokes). As such, there is not a specific topic or subject that requires illustrating. The thing is, whatever subject you choose must (MUST) be on the right half of the image and there must be space in the top third (of that part of the photo) to print the title. Do not put a title on your image. Do not put any text or any placeholders, just a 16:9 image with the subject on the right side and room at the top for a title.

28th place
Looking to the left from the Bad Water Basin in Death Valley, CA at sunset time showed some wonderful patterns with the ground, the slope, the mountains, the sky and was aptly filled by the golden soothing rays of the Sun. Who says there's no beauty in the desert?

Notes: It's neither my camera nor my photography skills that made this shot possible. Sometimes we just have to put all our expertise away and enjoy what mother nature offers to us! Composed this to make sure that I was able to capture different patters my eye saw.
