Unreleased Photos, Behind The Scenes & Random Thoughts

The Calm Of The Desert

Despite being mostly barren, I find that there is a stillness, a peaceful feeling of calm in the desert. This is the perfect time of the year to explore because, the temperatures are moderate to very cool. I was shocked to learn how cold it can actually get in the desert at night. While there isn’t an abundance of photo opps around every corner, there is still plenty of interesting sights to keep one occupied both as a photographer and as a curious human.

In the photograph below I happened upon a makeshift memorial for some unfortunate soul that lost their life in this exact spot. I can only assume it was from a traffic related accident? In the distance you can see how modern development has started to change the overall appearance of the scenery. In the far background lies beautiful outstretched mountains that I await to explore to uncover the potential mysteries I’m certain they’re hiding within. I’m really hoping to witness some of the native wildlife of this particular area.

I’m finding that it’s extremely cool to learn that there is more to Las Vegas than just casinos.
