Showcase of Desert Photography

In this past we have showcased examples of landscape photography, which includes photos of mountains, valleys, plains, lakes, coast lines, and a variety of other types of landscapes. Deserts may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of subjects for landscape photography, but even a barren desert provides opportunities for beautiful photographers.

In this post we’ll showcase 20 outstanding examples of desert photography from a variety of different photographers. Hopefully it will serve as inspiration for you in your own work.
