Borrego Badlands

The beautiful colors and layers of the Borrego Badlands, viewed from Fonts Point, Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, California

From up on Fonts Point this is my favorite spot in all of the Borrego Badlands. When you look out over the vast rugged terrain it's easy to miss the layers of subtle colors, an artists' palette that shows warm red, pink and gold when the sun is low and cool blues in the shade. If you could see the left slope of the hills on the right in this shot you would see that just the center of them has a cascade of yellow sliding down the center.

I don't think I'll ever tire of photographing this exact spot, but one of these days I need to be down there at the bottom finding my way through the washes that squiggle through the eroded hills to get to this very exact spot.
