This is another photo from my driving trip to the Southwest. After exploring Utah for three days, visiting Bryce Canyon National Park and Zion National Park, I was ready to drive towards the ocean.
Sometimes driving through the desert can be monotonous and boring. I realized that while driving from Las Vegas to Los Angeles. It was probably the longest 400 km in my life. But the drive from Zion to Las Vegas was far from boring. I’ve already addressed the amazing transformation from canyons to the desert in my earlier post.
I find the featured photo to be very graphical. There is nothing special happening in the frame and there is no main object of interest. There is just an incredible variety of textures and colors with the thick clouds casting random shadows and, as result, adding depth to the composition.
A beautiful desert.
