Skies Over 29

I haven't had a chance to do much desert photography recently, but I did get a couple nice sunset shots last weekend in 29 Palms, CA. This one is more "moon-rise" than sunset, but I like the colors and lights of the town in the background.

This one's my favorite... just an old dusty desert road, a short walk from our house, that disappears off in the distance. Very little light left, but wonderful colors in the sky. A very typical scene you can find just about anywhere you go in the desert.
Linking with Skywatch Friday. Click on the link to see great skies from around the world. Have a great weekend!

  3. Hi there - after taking my "after sunset" pictures I think I'll be doing more low light photographs. Looks like you used the same techniques.
