Sunset at Font's Point
One of the main reasons I headed to the desert last weekend (other than wildflower hunting and some rest & relaxation) was to meet a group of photographers I "met" on Google+. I asked my parents to come with me, not only for their company (which I love) but also because meeting a bunch of strangers in the desert by myself didn't seem like the brightest idea.
The initial group meeting location was Font's Point, a four mile drive down Font's Wash. From where we parked it was an easy hike to the point overlooking the Badlands of Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. The view was stunning! Here are a few of my photos from that evening:
And that group of photographers? Fantastic people! Talented photographers and genuinely nice people. I'm honored to have met and had a chance to shoot with them. We met up with the photo group later on that evening for dinner at a local Mexican food restaurant (Carmelita's, great food! check them out if you find yourself in Borrego Springs) and then headed out for a bit of night shooting after dinner....photos coming soon - stay tuned!
Greetings Angela, these photographs were exceptionally well done. You captured your subject in each shot, to gain the maximum interest and to gain the most effective composition of each shot. With desert photography, you must pay major attention to the lighting and to the shadows as they advance across the landscape. These photographs are very good and are easy to look at. They give the viewer a sense of a post primal state of evolution, prior to the advent of people. Well done you.
