    Wow, this is stunning. Love the sepia and star, plus the cracked texture echoes the parched earth. I can almost feel the heat. A fave for me…

  • Thanks so much for your kind words. Yes it was incredibly hot that day!

    Awesome title and fantastic creation here Chrissy!!!! Love how you put this all together! SUPERB!! :))XXX

  • Hey Girlie. So glad you like this one. We were out there last year to visit my Dad in August and of course OMG it was so hot, the sun beating down in a cloudless sky. But at least it wasn’t humid. We ended up taking a short hike into the desert, saw some wild donkeys but they ran from us so no good shots of them. Thanks for the comment and fave xoxox

    Nice work, Chrissy! I like the sort of raw and dramatic effect to this… Great composition with those trees included low in the foreground too. Lots of depth to this photo too.. I think this is what they tried to each us in photo school….

  • Thank you so much for such a nice review, Katherine. I always hesitate to post an image that is not really “pretty” to look at, it usually does not get much attention. But I was happy with this one and I am thrilled you like the composition so well.
