Does a mysterious force draw people to this giant of a rock? The Aboriginal people of Australia call it Uluru, a name that has no specific meaning (at least, from what I know). Some people want to climb it, maybe to get closer to its mysterious power or maybe just because it is there. But, the Aboriginal people say it is a sacred place and should not be climbed. Most people respect the sacredness and are content to watch the sun set over the immense dome.
The sunset was warm and glowing at this popular hiking trail near home in Southern California.
This volcanic crater in Death Valley is 600 feet deep and a half mile across. It is surrounded by a vast lava field which encompasses its younger sibling, Little Ubehebe, along with several other smaller craters.
A grove of slender palms is silhouetted against the evening sky in Laguna Beach, California.
This pier is a lively place any time of day, but has extra charm at sunset. After quite a few days of not posting, I wanted to share something very Californian.
Off the shore of Laguna Beach, California, a cloud bank almost engulfed the sun as it was setting….but not quite!
This is my one and only shot of the sunset at a remote spot in California’s Anza Borrego Desert Park. We had planned to arrive earlier, but the road leading to this point overlooking a badlands was an obstacle course strewn with rocks and pits of soft sand. There was just enough time to set up my tripod and shoot!
