this is an area they call the high desert...it has hills, and is not classic and flat, there are all sorts of animal types that are anti-social out here, and yes Bob, them thar hills have rattlesnakes that will bite you, and they harbor the western diamond back, an occasional transient side winder, tho rare-rare..and something nasty called the mojave green...a rattler that has evolved into a killing machine...scorpions, and all sorts of muliple legged biters...lol..
If you travel more inward...going east, less then 20 miles..you will hit the westen edge of flat Mojave ( mo-HAHvee) desert, where there are joshua trees, and this particular area of photograph is about 100 miles north east of Downtown Los Angeles. I am a huge fan of
traditionalist Vaquero lifestyle...will get more into that in the future..
Alex, if you ever come to the US, the desert you want to capture is in and around Sedona, Arizona...I have friends who run a small bed and breakfast, about an hours drive from the most beautiful deserts on the planet, with sequara cactus, and stark red bluffs..quite the spiritual spot, said to be a natural vortex..I will make sure they treat you right...and offer you the comforts of home. THAT desert is the spot...trust me on this...
I will see what I have in my computer calmac...and make note that I need to show you these places, as you have broadened my horizons, with my beautiful Borders..
Sadly, here, Not a duck in site.
