When I initially got interested in landscape photography, I focused on Iceland and other cold and harsh weather environments. Well, COVID happened, and travel, especially international travel, wasn't really an option. After vaccines were released, and restrictions became lest strict, I was ready to get back out there, and I set my sights on the American desert southwest. I headed to Moab, UT, rented a car, and started exploring. I'd never seen anything like it. This was in my home country, but it looked like another planet. Although it was my first time experiencing the desert, it won't be my last.
