Lime Canyon Wash, Nevada


Nothing like dramatic lighting to add some zip to a landscape. Plus I’ve long admired the braided patterns that flowing water leaves in the bed of a desert wash, but it’s hard to make an interesting photograph from them.

I made this photo mid-morning. Would you have guessed that? In addition to the weather not being so hot, hiking in the desert in November means lots more low-angle light. The trade-off is that the days are short, so dinner is really early, and the nights can seem awfully long. But that, in turn, means it’s easy to be up for the dawn.
