Nevada Desert: Twilight in Summer

Sunset in the Nevada Desert

The Nevada desert is lovely in summer, the sunsets delicate, the twilight hours long and leisurely.  Although those evenings seem as if they could last forever, we must elude those illusions.

In this photograph, the Humboldt Range appears dwarfed but in reality it is taller than most in the region and produces a number of watersheds which benefit the fauna, flora and some small communities.

    • Thank you very much. It is just so amazing how fluid the land/sky scape is in the desert at times. I can shoot the same viiew in different seasons and times of day and produce very different results.

      Artistic space is a beautiful place in which to commune with God:)

  7. Vivian, there is always a palpable serenity under the sky in every photograph you capture. And I believe we transfer who we are into how we see life and what our hands create. With love, Sharon

    • Sharon, Thank you for your kind words. I am bemused that I am taking up photography at this point in my life. My vision has never been good and now I am going blind in one eye due to an old injury. Yet I feel that I see more clearly than ever:) Love, Vivian
