Queen's Chamber, Bisti Badlands, New Mexico


To get these sunset shots, i got lost in the wilderness that night,

couldn't find the landmarks on my way in after getting dark,

Temperature dropped to 38F that night, too cold to fall in sleep in the

open ground.

The most dreadful thing was that my wife and 2 yrs old daughter were with me! Luckily we were all ok, my daughter even surprisingly slept well with layers of our extra coats.

Swear won't be that dare devil again if there will be next time, at least bring a GPS, a compass & bigger flashlite into such wildness if plan to get sunset shots.

And better go alone. Wish some of you could learn from my lessons.
