In the desert we get a clear view of the naked earth, its bones uncovered and exposed. Although barren and arid, the desert is where I have learned the most about nature as it tells an epic story of water and erosion. 

The desert has become my favorite environment to create photographs in, since it is always so clean, uncluttered, and simplified. Shapes emerge without obstruction. Patterns can be easily appreciated without distraction. Colors are concise and powerful. Repeating layers can be followed into the distance as far as the eye can see. 

Unfortunately the desert is probably the least appreciated landscape on earth, usually seen as 'wasted' land as it lies empty. However, anyone that spends time in the desert quickly learns that this emptiness, this nothingness, is the most special part about it. In our growing cities, crowded highways, and sprawling suburbs, we are slowly learning the value of space as it disappears. Hopefully we can fully understand why we need these havens of nothingness before it's too late.
