Somewhere off the beaten track in middle of nowhere, Nevada, I saw an interesting rock outcropping in the distance.
“Let’s go explore!” I said to Ray.
I could see the look in his eyes.
“Long Pants!” I exclaimed.
So we donned our long pants and set off amongst the prickly pear cactus, the teddy bear cholla, the walking stick cactus, the spitting needle cactus, the attack cactus, and the grabby cactus. And there were some Joshua Trees too.
After half an hour of careful stepping, we reached the rock. We photographed all around and as the sun went down I decided to walk around the back.
To my surprise, I found my own secret oasis with barrel cacti working their way up the rock cliff.
But the light disappeared quickly and I didn’t get any more photos.
I am keeping my special location a secret for now. It’s my first secret photo location 🙂
Next year I will return, with reinforced pants, to photograph here again.
