A featureless landscape can throw up the most amazing surprises, especially at the right time of day.

People wonder why I love livnig in AZ. These photos truly exemplify why.
May I use some of these photos on my Snowy Owl Publications facebook site? (With proper credit, of course.) I would like to use some of them in conjunction with quotes and so forth. I would be happy to include a link to your site and print the photographer’s name.
Great shots! We used desert imagery extensively for our website design, so it is nice to see others love the stark and beautiful landscapes as well!
I think the image by OneEighteen is absolutely superb.
Here are a couple of mine from Sossusvlei Namibia

Thanks for posting these images guys. I’m quite taken by “CMGrames” image. Lines, tones, colours, and then the raggedy tree in the middle. Great stuff.
Awesome pictures. I love the dimensions.
