The Beautiful Mojave Desert

The Yellow Desert - Mojave, California
In yesterday's post I said something, and I realized that none of the images in the post backed up the quote. I said:
"The desert offers many photographic opportunities. The beauty may not be immediately obvious, but this is indeed a beautiful place. The mountains have a bit of red in them. The The sky can be dramatic. The desert flora can be interesting. Everything has a wide-open feel."
Yes, a couple of the photographs in the post demonstrated the dramatic sky and the wide-open feel, but the rest of the quote wasn't demonstrated. However, the photograph above, which I recently captured using a Nokia Lumia 1020, does a pretty good job of putting what I said into a visual example.

What The Yellow Desert demonstrates is that beauty exists everywhere if you look for it. Even in a harsh environment that many would describe as "brown" and "boring" there is indeed true beauty. You just have to find it. It's there.
