Interesting phenomenom and a great shot to go along with it!!
I remember watching a special on TV. about this place, and I think one of the theories had something to do with the magnetic pull of the moon.
Great low POV with eceptional detail and beautiful natural colors. Well done!!

Fascinating story about the moving rocks.
I never could have imagined those rocks moving and creating that path behind.
A great composition for this singular subject and rich texture caught on the dry soil.
Thanks a lot for share the photo and your interesting notes,

Great photograph of weird phenomenon.
I've been to Death Valley and loved the scenery it offers.
Applying Ockham's razor technique, wind and rain are the most likely explanation of such movement.

After reading your note, I remember this subject from tv. Unexplained movement is very interesting. Sometimes we hear from other places the vehicles goes up to hill without working motor and without a driver. For example in Erzurum province I lived an event like this with my car. I stopped my cars motor and it begun to move up to hill. It was so interesting.
And finally your photo looks very nice. Your composition is succesful. Even if it hasn't any interesting story, a well-considered photo. Bravo and TFS.

I've been meaning to comment on this for quite some time now...finally weekend's here :)
I've always wondered about these rocks and their trail as i've seen pictures from here before, so now, thanks to your notes, i understand how it all happens.
This is a superb shot (as it's the other one, too, actually) with a terrific composition and a great attention to details and depth.
The elements are simple but very effective and i really like the single rock and lots of texture in the foreground here. The trails then leads the eye wonderfully all the way to the mountains and the well exposed sky in the back.
Overall, a superb capture, my friend!
Bravo and TFS

I've seen a whole documentary about these stones and was very impressed with why they moved about the dry lake. You captured the track of this rock in a most artistic way. Showing just one rock and the path and made over the many years. The texture of the dry lake bed and the warm color contrast beautifully with the soft blue sky.

such an exciting phenomena you depicted. Excellent artistic composition with lively colours and of rich intensity.
The cracks of the mud is splendid to give an outstanding graphic.
Well presented in a stunning composition.
