Tecopa, Mojave Desert

Photograph by Angel Di Bilio, My Shot

This Month in Photo of the Day: Nature and Weather Photos

Tecopa is located a few miles south of Shoshone in California's Mojave Desert. Tecopa is known for its hot springs. Evaporation of the flooded dry lake in late spring creates cracked-mud patterns loved by photographers. The perspective is produced by the wide-angle lens (12mm) and placement of the camera close to the ground. Photo taken at sunset.
