Photos Showing the Beauty of the Desert

The deserts of the American Southwest are an incredible, varied landscape with a vast array of features. California alone has a remarkable changing landscape, and Arizona is completely different even though it sits right on the border. It’s as if they drew the line for the border because the land defined it for them. Whether it’s the beauty of a wind-carved sand dune in Glamis or the power of the noble Seguaro cactus, or the surreal towering red rocks of Sedona; the desert has always been mystifying to David. These images try to capture that at once forbidding yet beautiful landscape of the desert.
