As we were driving through the desert landscape, we were told to follow the deepest set of tire tracks, which would reduce our likelihood of getting stuck in mud. I now notice the handful of tire tracks heading in different directions, and I can only speculate what these people were looking for in traveling towards the mirage in the distance.
Looking at this photo I feel the expanse and endless breath of opportunity. At the same time, the cracking earth drying up reminds me of our human limitations and the urgency to survive even when it looks like so much is available. – Emma
Love the way the clouds are illuminated.
Although the dark bellies of the clouds make them look substantial, they don’t leave any trace of a shadow on the ground.
The sense of vastness is incredible. The clouds are perfect and the exposure is great. I need to add Black Rock Desert to my Bucket List.
The negative space of desert with the line going across the third rule. My eyes follow the top of the mountain range. finally, the clouds add a sense of time to the photo.
This photo makes me think of an endless journey and if it will ever end
