One of my favourite spots in the Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada was Fire Wave.
I’m not sure if that’s because it’s a really spectacular spot or because I got the shot despite some people who really didn’t want me to get it.
After driving for an hour and a half to the trailhead and hiking for hours and hours in the blazing sun (okay, it was only 30 minutes but it seemed like forever, I thought I was going to faint it was so hot – and it was only March!) we got there and the light was terrible.
But what doesn’t usually happen is a bunch of rude photographers who thought they owned the place and left all their stuff all over everywhere so no one else was able to get a decent shot. People like that really piss me off.
That’s okay. It just made me extra determined and willing to endure another hike a few days later. You should have seen my smile when we got there and there were puffy clouds to meet us
That’s Ray standing up there. He’s a great model isn’t he?
