The Desert

For a place that’s supposed to be barren, desolate, foreboding, and austere, the desert has a surprisingly large amount going on in it.

There was tons of color, great lighting, and interesting geology, and that’s apart from the standard “desert” photos like this one.

I was torn, though, on whether I was more interested in close-up stuff, or larger, more environmental shots.

The salt pan at Badwater was pretty cool …

And the devil’s golf course looked great as a foreground:

But one of my favorites was the sunrise that almost didn’t happen because of all the dust that got kicked up overnight by the wind.
