What I love about this image (created with my DJI Phantom 4), is the contrast between the hills in the foreground, which are slightly in shadow, and the hills in the background, which are in the sun.

San Bernardino Mountains- Sweet Light…

I shot this photo yesterday, in the San Bernardino Mountains, at approximately 4:20 PM.  The sun had just dropped below the mountains to the south west.DCIM100MEDIADJI_0015.JPG

An alien world…

…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:

Drone Image: Koehn Dry Lake Bed…

…can be seen in the upper-right-hand side of this image.  I took this photo during my recent visit to the El Paso Mountains.

The white sheen of the lake bed is not an illusion; it is the result of salt deposits, which have been mined there since 1911.
