patterns, vistas, and structures within arid landscapes

Coming from the Pacific Northwest of the US where the plentiful rain produces lush forests, powerful rivers, and greenery that covers the land, deserts are alien lands to me.

Perhaps that’s their allure: what might appear barren at first glance reveals strange, beautiful shapes when examined closely through my lens. Patterns within the sand. Trees and shrubs that defy their scorching surroundings. Rocks formed into organic shapes through the power of wind and weather… You can even find the ruins of long-ago civilizations whose people lived in harmony with the desert for hundreds of years.

This Deserts collection highlights the gems you can find across these arid landscapes.
