Badwater Basin in Death Valley National Park is the lowest place in North America at 282 feet below sea level.  Badwater Basin is covered in hexagon shaped salt formations that make great forground elements when photographing the Panamint mountain range in the background.  Get there early in the morning to photograph the Panamint Range in the sunrise while the basin is still in the shade.
