Twilight - Mojave, California

Drove up to the desert above Edwards Air Force base last weekend to shoot some pics. A beautiful, barren landscape.


The California desert is a land of contrasts – undulating sand dunes, jagged volcanic cinder cones, astounding rock formations, and many other scenic wonders. No single geologic process is at work; rather the combined effects of water, sun, wind, biological and tectonic forces. Because these factors combine in different ways in different places, the appearance of the California desert landscape varies as well. 29 million acres, or 28% of California’s landmass, is desert, with elevations ranging from 250 feet below sea level to nearly 12,000 feet.
