Sunset outside of Pahrump, Nevada, USA. It was our second day driving from San Francisco and we were fairly eager to get to Las Vegas when this amazing lightshow presented itself in the rearview mirror.

Needless to say, we stopped the car.

A couple of days later, I learned that the portable hard-drive we were using had falsely indicated my photos from that day had been saved but actually HADN’T been. Fortunately, I make a habit of always keeping a dozen or so favourite images from every day on my cards just in case anything happens to my backup devices. This was one of four shots of that sunset I’d kept. (Phew!)

This photo was originally posted under the title “Pahrump Sunset”, I’ve revived it as a result of ECGardners favworks challenge, to post five of my personal favourite shots. This is a favourite, because I know I’d always have memories of that sunset even if ALL the images had been lost, but damnit I’m glad it survived!

Bernd Talasch doesn’t remember being hatched in a research laboratory in Omaha in the late 1950s so maybe that never happened. (Placeholder bio – remember to replace).
