Last week I was inspired by the incoming storms to shoot the desert of Arizona from Sedona to Lake Powell to Monument Valley. What I experienced was the beauty of the native people and the allure of the desert landscape. It simply took my breath away.
It sounded counter-intuitive to photograph landscapes in the rain, but I was looking for dramatic skies, rich earth tones and fleeting moments of beauty caused by the rare quenching of the parched desert earth.
Below is my new collection of desert photos from last week. These are so new, they are not even named or released online, but I wanted to share them with you.
Last but not least, I would like to thank my local Navajo guides Raymond Chee and Lionel Bigthumb. Thank you for sharing your beautiful land and spirit with me.
I hope this collection inspires you the way these scenes of rare desert beauty moved me.
