Description
In Evening Painted Desert – Arizona, Burr captured thunderclouds racing across the landscape promising moisture to the parched land. A twisted, lone juniper epitomizes the struggle of life within this arid landscape. Located in Northern Arizona, the Painted Desert is a broad region of rocky badlands encompassing more than 93,500 acres. Home to some of the nation’s most memorable formations and features, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, floods, and sunlight, all combined to create the Painted Desert. Deposits of clay and sandstone, stacked in elegant layers, reflects the setting Arizona sun in colorful radiance.
