Wow this is beautiful, I love the high contrast throughout this whole shot and the angle you took this from.

Looks like Joshua Tree National Monument. I lived out in that part of the US for several years. Great composition. I like how the angle of the rocks on the right (with the lines) draws the viewers' eye to the sun.

it may be hard to believe but I really used to live out there in the Mojave Desert, in Joshua Tree =) I really miss it, now I'm currently living in Missouri.

I'd love to live there for a few weeks, and trek across that whole wilderness.

Ha, that's true. Driving through I5 in California you pass all the geographical places after which they named them in Fallout, too :)

I wish I could see so much of the world like you... Unfortunately I'm stuck in some dry-dead land in the army >_>" yuck...

Ah, are you conscripted for a year?

I have 1 year and 10 months of service so far. I'm finishing my service in January 24'th 2013. Till then, I'll always feel bad about myself :( (for not seeing the world more...)

Conscription is a terrible thing, but having such a small country, as you do, surrounded by all that kind love in the region, it might be a necessary evil. Either way, I hope you get out of the army soon and regain your freedom.

Look on the bright side - perhaps being there provides some unique photographic opportunities?

Hehe :) NAH. Lots of people like to think it's beautiful here, but honestly? I kinda think this place is dry and monotonous. Plus, I'm more of a winter guy, I like cold environments and rain, which is something rare around here.

I guess the bright side is that it really teaches you a lot about life. I've really grown up during my service, I guess I owe it to the army.

Back on topic, you're an amazing photographer XD
