Layers Of A High Desert Sunset


I just need you and some sunsets. – Atticus

We drove up to the mountains last Sunday, and by the end of the day we experienced a magical sunset. These are the different layers of sunset we experienced displaying their beauty over the high desert landscape.


Dusk is just an illusion because the sun is either above the horizon or below it. And that means that day and night are linked in a way that few things are there cannot be one without the other yet they cannot exist at the same time. How would it feel I remember wondering to be always together yet forever apart? 


― Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook


This sunset is enjoyed up in the Spring Mountain Range (NV,) just outside the little community of Cold Creek. Its was actually the first time I visited this area without seeing any wild horses. Slightly disappointing to begin with, but the fresh air, and the magic of the scenery soon overtook any feelings of disappointment. 

It’s almost impossible to watch a sunset and not dream.  – Bern Williams


There’s new high resolution photos to be enjoyed in my art gallery, including these Joshua Trees reaching up into the sunset.

Thank you for enjoying the sunset with me. I hope you’re having a wonderful week so far.

It’s all about experiences, and the healing power of nature. Life is about choosing happiness. I entered the magic world of photography when I was five years old. My gypsy soul have taken me to many different countries, and definitely taught me to be more humble. I believe that you are what you eat, body and soul. I enjoy growing my own food, and spending time outdoors. A Sagittarius loves to travel, have an open mind and, and a philosophical view. It motivates them to wander around the world in search of the meaning of life. Sagittarius is extrovert, optimistic and enthusiastic, and likes changes. A lot of that perfectly describes me. The fact that my ancestors, on both parents sides, were vikings, doesn’t exactly lessen my desire to explore. Maybe a slightly more mindful exploring, compared to the average viking. My blog, and my art prints is a results of my (inner and outer) explorations. Love, Maria
