I found this playa on a recent trip up to Sierra Nevada and i knew I would be back. This dry lakebed backs up against a cinder cone and in the far background the Sierras can be seen. It can be found near Fossil Falls in the Mojave Desert.

captured in the wilderness, harvested in fort collins, colorado.

    Exquisite! When I get this Group running smoothly, I might start one just for deserts. And if I do, it’s all your fault! LOL, well, not all, but you’ve got prime desert photos. Thanks for having these up for view!

  • thanks. i love the high desert. when the snow comes in at winter its almost surreal.

    This is great! Au Naturale is the way to go with this one, but i do like DawsonImages idea of a b&w version,maybe with a little gothic glow added in. Very sweet! I’ve hiked the Sierras once and they are beyond beautiful.

  • thank you. i really appreciate the ideas.
