Long, lonely hours in perhaps my favorite National Park

The first one is wicked with the reflection and the north star in view. Great shot. I like the last one as well with the rugged foreground. Very nice set. About how long were the exposures and did you do any stacking of photos?

30-45 minutes per exposure, no stacking

every camera that has a bulb mode can do this, so yes.

great pictures, mind if i ask what aperture and iso you used?

Beautiful. #1 and #7 are my faves, but they are all great.

Death Valley is one of my favorite places as well. I haven't been there in years though but as soon as I get a new camera I really want to go down there for a while.
