These are my favorite Nevada desert sunset images of 2012. I’ve discovered that there are certain places where the chances of seeing a beautiful desert sunset are greater than others. Often when my husband and I go out exploring for the day, I start mid-afternoon looking at my watch and urging him to arrive at a certain destination by a particular hour–depending on the season, weather, and what I witnessed the night before. Fortunately, he’s a generous man and happy to accommodate my requests.
“If I can put one touch of rosy sunset into the life of any man or woman, I shall feel that I have worked with God.” — G.K. Chesterton, Essayist
The desert sunset photographs in this gallery were taken (from left to right and top to bottom):

The featured image in this post was taken near the foothills of the Eugene Mountains.

This is a really beautiful series of photographs. The desert environment, that wonderfully clear air, produces some stunning sunsets which you capture beautifully.
The desert air really does facilitate these gorgeous sunsets. Thank you for such a nice compliment! That means so much to me coming from a photographer that I greatly admire! 🙂
Sunsets are the best in the desert. I totally prefer them there than at the beach, for example. Gorgeous photos, Vivian.

Beautiful. Here is another sunset quote you may enjoy. It’s by Mary Baker Eddy. ” A radiant sunset, beautiful as blessings when they take their flight, dilates and kindles into rest. Thus will a life corrected illumine its own atmosphere with spiritual glow and understanding.”

Nothing does pink beauty at sunset like the desert. Beautiful.
Hi Marilyn, Isn’t it dreamy? My husband and I are not in the desert right now, we are in our California home and I am soooo missing the desert… Thanks for your note! Viv
Una Serie Impresionante,… Muy Buenas Fotografías… Un Saludo.
Bienvenido y muchas gracias. 🙂 Vivian
Whew! This shot should be blown to 10ftx10ft and put on a wall. Striking and meditative. Love it. Thanks again for stopping my my blog. I appreciate the time it takes to do that.—M
Dear Melissa, I am delighted that you enjoyed this photograph. The scene depicts one of my favorite Nevada desert memories; my husand and I came upon it suddenly after a long day of travel. Its beauty is an example of the gifts God gives me, gifts that I have not earned and do not deserve but which nevertheless grace me with His love.
In your blog the loving attention that you devote to gifts–the way you look deeply for them, and bring them to light in a way that they we can all share in them–is one of the things which draws me to your writings and your photographs.
Love and many blessings, Vivian

Welcome! Ah, the photographer’s mind is a wonderful place, isn’t it? The color, yes, among my very favorites.
Hey, is there anyway that this can be used for an album cover?
Hi Nic, Sorry for the delay in responding, I have been traveling. Would you please tell me a bit about yourself as a artist and send me a sample of your music? Thank you. — Vivian
