Last Light of the Desert by michael-dalberti Last Light of the Desert by michael-dalberti
Hiking alone in the desert has an otherworldly feel sometimes. No sounds, no people, no trees - just a vast, unbroken landscape that leaves you with such a different vision than when you first stepped in.

Imagine sitting here - hearing nothing but the silent wind as the sun slowly dips below the horizon.

Hi, i'm doing a photostory assignment for my course 'The Arts' at Uni and this picture corresponds great with the theme. I was just wondering if i could use this picture. I'll give you full accreditation and i'll send you a link of my assignment if you want. Regards, Corina. c:

Great scenery and picture. I have not been to a dessert yet, but it is obvious why people have always used it for meditation and the quest to find answers. :-)

Stunning!

It's amazing, like I can FEEL the silence and loneliness there. It must be a mind-blowing experience being in a desert.
And this light is just beautiful. The last breathe before the day says goodbye

Yes! It's a lonely, yet cathartic experience; familiar, yet accordingly different to the landscape each time. It's little blurbs like yours that make the image all the more poignant. Nice one.
