Description

Taken at sunset from Font's Pt in Borrego Badlands within Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. Looking towards Borrego Springs. Besides the impending sand cloud, the fading light on a remote location while perched above the cliff-edge to capture a panorama, and a formidable drive back off-road on a sand wash in a two-wheel drive truck instead of the recommended four-wheel drive vehicle, there was a bit of suspense about getting the photo! Not only was I fortunate to be able to get to and from this remote location, I was barely able to arrive in time to take this first shot after setting up. My son and I were both lucky to have been able to also get in and out of this site before the sand storm arrived. We had to deal with it after going back on the highway though. The cloud of sand also adds a critical bridge of midpoint visual interest between the dark mountain skyline and the Badlands seen in the foreground. Portfolio: http://hvphotoworks.smugmug.com/
