Desert Treats

January 11, 2019  •  1 Comment

Maybe it was the strange and unfamiliar setting of the desert in fog that heightened my attraction to the scenery and the resulting images I've produced.  I had been on the Domelands hike with Alex twice before and always came back with images I was happy with but this time it had an added appeal with the dense morning fog, the pleasurable company of Shuwen and Katherine, and it being the first desert hike of the season.   Here are two more images from that morning walkabout.

Turning around on the climb to domelands an arroyo leads the eye to an enveloped Mortero Wash.  Look closely and you can see wind turbines on the top of the Jacumba Mountain range

It's interesting how the first photo incorporates fog with a very limited sense of depth, whereas the second incorporates it with a very large sense of depth. And they both work. I really like the contrast between the foreground detail and the fog induced softness in Looking Back.
