This photo is done in Valley of Fire Nevada, US. On photo is Kersti alias Amira. Photography of the Fire Wave is perhaps the main reason why so many people want to hike to it. A full spectrum of desert colors can be seen from this location which allows for some brilliant shots. I’m not an expert on photography; mostly I just get lucky with my lil’ point and shoot. However, I’ll just provide some notes on what First of all, the Fire Wave is smaller than most pictures make it out to be. The whole thing is less than 40 ft long and it dips into a bowl shaped area. It runs in a North-South direction and most of the pictures of it are facing south to highlight its colorful striations.
Different times of the day offer diverse opportunities for photography. We first visited the wave in the mid-morning which was not ideal but make for some interesting shots. The midday winter sun illuminated the striated rocks below the wave. I also wished I was there in the early morning to photograph the east-facing side of the wave. This time we run late, so during the sunset Kersti clime to cliff and I made photos of it. Isnt she beautiful!!!
