Wonder Valley, CA, USA

Living in the desert means vast stretches of open sky. Its easy to watch weather systems move in and roll about the basin. During monsoon season clouds are always decorating the sky. At night they have a particular interaction with the moon that you don’t get a chance to fully appreciate in developed areas. The subtle but dramatic moods and vistas of a nighttime sky full of clouds illuminated by the moon are washed away by the relentless dirty orange glow that is a standard feature of city life. I hope to convey some of the quiet magic of these nights that used to be commonplace in most peoples lives less than a hundred years ago.
