Desert Storm Gathering: photos from my walkabout
« on: December 17, 2022, 06:20:29 pm »

I decided to go walkabout in the solitude of the western desert a day before one of the biggest storms in years approached the western US. FWD - priceless!
Inspired by Slobodan's series on Tuscany, I will post some of the later images as I go.

My first thought… What a classical beauty!

Shoshone Dolomites

Shoshone Dolomites. Not really, but part of the Shoshone Mountains.
Further along the walkabout; spectacular mountain range.

Shoshone Dolomites
Further along the walkabout; spectacular mountain range.

A bit reminiscent of the Italian Dolomites… I like this one. The sky is, again, perfect and I also like the right part of the frame. It gives a bit of depth so the shot is more than a massive trio of peaks…
Bravo David!

Thanks Eric. And here's another, not B&W, but the colors were superb with the cliffs lit by the winter sun. Twenty-eight degrees (F) if I remember correctly.

Peaceful Solitude
A little further on; a break from the snow in southern Oregon. Nobody for miles and miles.
