Nopah Range on the Mojave Desert

Location Origin Story

Dusk falls across the Nopah Range near the border between California and Nevada in these images lensed above the Nopah Range Wilderness. This area contains a desert symphony of dry rugged mountains, hills, and alluvial fans, badlands, playas, plains,  and river washes. Creosote, cactuses, yucca, and other desert shrubs cover the bajadas, adding hints of color and life to the barren mountains that rise above the desert.

On the left foreground in this image are the Spring Mountains and over the ridge on the left, you can see a part of the Mesquite Valley. On the horizon in the distance is the Mojave National Preserve with Old  Dad Mountain looming over the desert floor. In the middle of the image lay the Mesquite Mountains with the larger Kingston Range in the middle of the image towering over the surrounding wilderness. To the immediate right in the image, rising above the desert sitting alone is the Nopah Range.

About This Photograph

This pastel desert and mountains scene was photographed in the evening during the month of June while Zedekiah was flying and exploring the Mojave Desert near the border between California and Nevada.

Image Rarity

The image was taken from a moving aircraft, as Zedekiah piloted the aircraft while simultaneously operating the camera.

Zedekiah used the evening light to enhance the clouds as a backdrop, where timing and being in the correct place-in-space for this scene to reveal itself was crucial to this image composition.

Lastly, it is impossible to simply walk up a trail and take the same photograph again. This image was very difficult to create, and is truly one-of-a-kind, therefore making it extremely rare.
