“Desert Blooms” offers a rare glimpse in the life of an arid desert landscape. Against all odds, lush, delicate, green blooms thrive enveloped by a marshmallow of hot white sand. A moment of silence and soothing elegance captured.
In the last few years, Doris and her Nikon D810 have been travelling the wilds solo; sidestepping up the tallest dunes in North America, hiking 211 miles with a final step atop the tallest peak in the lower 48, hiking every marked and unmarked trail around a live volcano, climbing over fallen trees through ethereal gorges, and rolling out of her truck at four in the morning, in icy temperatures, to hike to the top of a lookout for that breathtaking sunrise. Life took a dramatic twist in 2014, and is now empowering Doris to pursue full-tilt - life as a Professional Landscape Photographer.
