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.

This forbidding landscape certainly has its beauty, Art, which is so well captured in your photographs.
