High Desert Light at Valley of the Moon

After the first visit to Valley of the Moon with our friend Hans, in April, Shuwen, Toni and I returned in June for a late afternoon hike. One would not expect that a desert hike in June can be all that enjoyable but at this relatively high elevation, temperatures are often still quite tolerable for hiking — especially when it’s windy and as I mentioned before, Valley of the Winds would be an equally fitting name for this place, so that seemed pretty much like a given. :)

Of course we didn’t quite know what to expect with regards to the light but (in hindsight not unexpected) there were absolutely no clouds in the sky and the best was to make use of it on the granitic rock formations, and enjoy the vast emptiness of the desert landscape as a whole…
