Sheer endless sand plains, only punctuated by impressive mountains, scoured by sand and wind. This is where you find Earth at its fiercest. It's the land of big birds of prey and carrion-eating vultures. The heat during the day is oppressive; only at night the scenery comes to life. During the fog-filled early hours of the day, the surroundings are of an almost extraterrestrial beauty. Landscapes of the World takes you to one of the most extraordinary places on Earth: Death Valley.
