desert sunset

the desert is definitely a place that takes time to get used to living in. it’s a bit of a “climate shock” especially when moving here from the east coast! but it’s breathtakingly beautiful in it’s own way. the sunsets here are not even comparable to sunsets I’ve seen anywhere else. the dust particles in the air create gorgeous colors every single evening at dusk.

this particular image was captured while driving north towards phoenix a few weekends ago just before the sun disappeared behind these mountains. i made my husband pull over so i could capture this moment before it was gone!
