Hello fairies! Today I want to share some really good news with you. It's about my work as a travel photographer. It's crazy but it's true. I won in the Travel Photo Awards contest this month. As you can imagine, I am really proud of this honor. Here is my photo which won the award. I took it while driving and walking around in the Death Valley National Park.

The story to the photo is: 

This photo was taken at Badwater Basin, the lowest point in North America. A sign on the adjacent mountain in front of the pool proclaims it to have an elevation of -282 feet. When I arrived at the Badwater pool, a rainstorm had just flood the valley bottom and covered the salt flats with a thin sheet of standing water. The view was truly amazing. I've never seen anything like that or so much salt ;-)
