This shot was taken near the small town of Aus where World War I ramparts can still be found and the desert horse offspring of German cavalry still run free. This photo is in the "ghost canyon" or geisterschluct, so names for the diamond thieves that were shot nearby as they fled police many decades ago. The area is beautiful and I hoped I captured some measure of it.

Hello Robert - This is gorgeous and yes, you have captured a shot which conveys the look of the area very well. The light is special and it makes a huge difference having the few clouds in the sky. The vastness of the desert is well conveyed with the mountains in the far distance and the wide barren plains running up to meet them. The tree anchors the shot and makes a great focal point. Magical landscape and a magical place.

Hello, a well composed landscape and gorgeous light seen in small slivers along the desert floor.
Good notes about a far flung location well off the beaten path.
