To kick things off, we present you his nightly spread on GoSee entitled 'Among the Stars', which was photographed for PROJECT magazine in Death Valley*. There are few places in the world where the skies are dark enough to allow full appreciation of the stars: “Too much light pollution.” Anton comments aptly. To enter the dark side, so to speak, the photographer and his team took the McLaren 720s Spider to the famous Death Valley in eastern California. It is considered one of the most primordial and thus least polluted places in the world when it comes to air and light.
“Under a magnificent sky and the very clever retractable roof of McLaren’s newest supercar, the 720S Spider, we set out to enjoy a show that, for drivers and stargazers alike, may be the greatest on Earth.” Anton Watts sums it up in a nutshell.
About - Death Valley. The valley received its English name in 1849 during the California Gold Rush. It was called Death Valley by prospectors and others who sought to cross the valley on their way to the gold fields, after 13 pioneers perished from one early expedition of wagon trains. During the 1850s, gold and silver were extracted in the valley. In the 1880s, borax was discovered and extracted by mule-drawn wagons.
Death Valley National Monument was proclaimed on February 11, 1933, by President Herbert Hoover, placing the area under federal protection. In 1994, the monument was redesignated as Death Valley National Park, as well as being substantially expanded to include Saline and Eureka Valleys. Death Valley is home to the Timbisha tribe of Native Americans, formerly known as the Panamint Shoshone, who have inhabited the valley for at least the past millennium.
