Glowed in soft light
DAY 5 - MORMON ROCKS AT SUNSET
Mormon Rocks at sunset
After enjoying another quiet morning at the camp in Mojave desert, I left for the city. However, I wasn’t returning to civilization right away. I had a bit of time, and my eyes were set on Mormon Rocks.
When I arrived at Mormon Rocks, it was still quite early. So, I drove around the area scouting a few spots. It was kind of a pain in the neck driving up and down both I-15 and the state highway getting on and off, but I eventually found some spots to catch the sunset as well as do astrophotography later on.
When the sun was dropping close to the mountain ridge line far west, I headed back out to one of the spots that I had scouted earlier. One of the cool things about Mormon Rocks is that there are so many different shapes and sizes of rock formations. They truly looked out of this world.
I loved the perfect timing that the rocks planted slanted glowed in soft light while the hills and mountains in the background all painted in vivid orange. All I had to do was just step in the frame.
