Facts About Deserts

Deserts are defined by a lack of water and receive less than 10 inches of rain per year. Deserts in the United States cover around 500,000 miles. There are 4 deserts in the United States: Great Basin (the largest and covers 190,000 square miles), Mojave (25,000 square miles), Chihuahuan, and Sonoran (120,000 square miles). Cactus are often found growing in arid deserts. The saguaro cactus, Carnegiea gigantea, is the largest cactus in the U.S., commonly reaching 40 feet in height.

Fine Art From the Desert Southwest

We all like the mountains, coastlines, lakes, and rivers for the scenery they offer. The desert areas of the American Southwest offer scenery that is completely different. There may not be trees and water, but the rock formations and desert skies can be an unforgettable combination. It can all be preserved in a Fine Art Print.

Visiting and Photographing Desert Landscapes

This gallery represents areas that are comprised of arid deserts with just a few trees to absolutely barren deserts with only sand dunes. The most famous sand dunes are shown in our separate Death Valley Gallery.

Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, South Dakota, and California contain some beautiful deserts. The impression that deserts are bland and colorless is simply not the case as evidenced by our photographs in Utah. Many of the desert areas are comprised of Red Rock as shown in our Red Rock Country gallery.

The American Deserts in Arizona have their rock formations and cactus. New Mexico has its white gypsum sand at White Sands National Park. Utah has amazing colors in Paria Canyon. There is Red Rock in Monument Valley, Capitol Reef National Park, Zion National Park, Arches National Park, and Canyonlands National Park.

South Dakota has it’s incredible Badlands. There are more areas of Deserts to explore for landscape and nature photographs than one can do in a lifetime. That doesn’t mean I can’t try.
