Carlsbad Desert Landscapes
The land over Carlsbad Caverns has its own austere beauty: desert, severe, astounding. Rather than spending time in the gorgeous caves, I spent my time out in the warm sunlight, on the top of the plateau, high above the plains.
I made several photos in infrared while visiting this time, as the sun and land seemed to starkly call to it. Pure simplicity of forms and light.
