50 Breathtaking Examples of Desert Photography

When we think of beautiful natural landscapes, we often picture fresh chilly mountains or the never-ending blues of the oceans. That’s not necessarily a good vision, since there are so many more other places on our planet that can be simply breathtaking, by uniqueness and simplicity. Today’s showcase can easily refer to minimalism in photography, but the actual central theme is the desert and its beauty. That’s right, those burning hot sands during the day and very cold air at night time make deserts such fascinating places. One must visit at least a desert during a lifetime, especially as a photographer. The soft curves of the dunes and the yellow grainy “seas” will for sure impress to the maximum and prove, once more, the greatness of Mother Nature!
