Scotty's Castle - Death Valley National Park (Part 9)

At the end of November last year (2012), I took a trip to Death Valley National Park. This is the second trip there in my life. The 1st time I went, I was still a little kid, and I didn't start taking photos yet. This time, I have a pro camera and I am ready to shoot the scenery. Death Valley National Park is known for its "out of this world" scenery, UFO sightings, and many other things. The desert is a very mysterious and beautiful place. In this chain of blog posts, I will be showing you mainly photos of Death Valley National Park, but also photos from surrounding areas like The Mojave Desert, Alabama Hills, and Rhyolite Ghost Town. I have picked out over 400 photos from my trip to show you guys and I will be dividing them into many blog posts. Unlike blog  post chains before, I obviously can't put a link of ever blog post on every single blog post, so instead, I will do the same thing I did for my Yellowstone National Park photos before, by sticking a link of the Next and Previous post on each blog post instead.

Full Resolution Photos and Prints: If you want to see full resolution photos or buy prints of any of the photos you see, they are up on my portfolio for viewing.

Today I will continue with the photos on the Scotty's Castle Tour. For this blog post, I have 11 photos instead of 10 because these 11 photos belong together. These were all the photos I took before the tour guide took us outside to go to the other half of the house (the guest house). Also, as said in my other posts, I used my Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT on every shot I took inside because the lighting is horrible. You may see some hot spots on some of the photos when I didn't aim the flash correctly. Also, if you want to find out more about Scotty's Castle, you can read about it on Wikipedia. I will try my best to tell you a little bit about the castle, but I'll be honest here, I didn't pay much attention to what the tour guide was saying and mainly focused on not messing up my photos. XD I can't tell you too much.

These are all the photos for today! I have 19 more photos left. Next time, I might just post 9 to compensate for the 11 I posted up this time. I hope you have enjoyed all these photos. Please don't forget to share the blog post with your friends and family members!
