The Valley of Fire is aptly named. With temperatures reaching 100F as early as 10am, it's not a place you want to be stuck in for long in any of the warmer months. Of course, that meant I just had to have the bright idea of photographing there in the summer. Yeah, that was brilliant. So there we were, hiking out across the desert to this spot as the sun was setting. The rocks were emanating heat, and the air was thick with it. The temperature was probably still in the 90s F. But when we arrived, the beauty of the amazing sandstone formations there took our breath away, and to walk around on these wavy curves of rock was reminiscent of walking on solidified waves of the ocean. You could almost imagine surfing the sandstone. Just as I was finishing up my photographing, the sun set on the distant western horizon.
