Sunset on the Nevada desert

Sunset south of Boulder City, Nevada

(Click to see this image with a darker border…brings out the colors a bit better)

Back in March I posted a sunset shot from the Nevada desert that had powerlines and I dubbed “Se7en” for Movie Title Wednesday. There were a few other shots I got that night and I just haven’t posted any of them until now.

It had been awhile since I’d seen a painted sky like this. Honestly, this wide open desert landscape was great, but I was scrambling to find something more interesting nearby to include in the frame. I realized, however, that this sunset wouldn’t last forever and sometimes all you need is a great sky.

This was one of the last images from a great afternoon just driving around this area south of Boulder City. In fact, I include the date the photo was taken in my tags, so you can see all the images taken on March 16th. I keep looking back on this day and what I love the most is that I have images to help me always remember how much fun I had just exploring some area that I’d never been before.

I was looking up ghost towns in Nevada, saw a little place called Nelson and headed off with no real plan or idea of what I wanted to shoot. That’s all I need really. Clouds, weather and driving around. It’s when I feel the most free and away from everything. Just me, my camera, the road, my iPod and the unknown.
