Desert Infrared

This 1998 monument is adjacent to milepost 56 on Imperial county road S2, from artist Nina Karavasiles.

This is the desert.
There’s nothing out here.
Nothing.

The stars were very nice on these nights. I set up for a long exposure on the orion constellation. At 20 seconds, I was able to get two flashes with my old sony H1.

The next day we drove about 8 miles up Split Mountain road.

I wanted to scamper to the top of these for sunset, but we instead went to El Centro. I learned from these two shots that the Nikon 17-55 f2.8 is less sharp at the wide angle than at max telephoto.

Cactus sure looks odd in this spectrum.

The light wasn’t too good at sunrise here at the Canyon Sin Nombre overlook, but a few hours later it improved, especially since the infrared seems to ignore haze much better.
