This particular picture was taken along Interstate 395 in the vicinity of Owens Lake which is close to Keeler, California. Driving along Interstate 395 at sunset, amid the Mojave Desert can be one of the prettiest sights.At sunset, the evening cloud formations start to move in and take over the clear sky above the Mojave Desert in California. The pink hues over the mountain ridges and the darker blue shades coincide to create the perfect opportunity for a picture.The arid region of the Mojave Desert covers an area of approximately 25,000 square miles where a very sparse variety of vegetation grows. The rainfall is less than six inches a year and the summer heat on the desert can reach up to 120 degrees farenheit. Every season is easily distinguished as the weather can differ a great amount between summer and winter.The highway known as Interstate 395 is a major route that extends through California and Nevada with many magnificent places to explore along the way. A sunset of this nature is just one of the many fascinating things to see and take a picture of. Be sure you have a fully loaded camera before heading out on this journey along Interstate 395 in California.Sunset near Keeler, Owens Lake, Interstate 395, California, USA, North America
