…is what I think of at times, when I’m in the desert. Perhaps this is just the perspective of someone who grew up on the east coast.
But, the barren landscape of the desert is a big part of its allure, to me. Some of the images that I’ve captured with my DJI Phantom 4 (https://www.dji.com/phantom-4) add to the alien world-like feel to the desert, such as the image below:

This was a nice, slow flight over the interior of the El Paso Mountain Range, which is located in California’s Mojave Desert, approximately thirty miles south of the city of Inyokern. Looming in the background is Black Mountain, which has some interesting lore associated with it.
It is thought that Native Americans used the top of the mountain as a site for their ceremonies and trading activities. According to local legend, miners who were prospecting and living in the area during the late nineteenth century, reported seeing strange lights at the top of the mountain at night.
This was filmed using my DJI Phantom 4 Drone in January, 2018. All rights reserved.
