Poetic landscapes of the USA West Coast

7th January 2016

The images below were taken during a road trip through the USA West Coast in 2011. Although the pictures are 4 years old, they don’t feel outdated, in my opinion. The landscapes, poetic and sometimes surreal, seem to be untouched by the ages. It remains a wild, open and majestic country, where you can drive for miles and miles and have the scenery all to yourself.

Below is a selection of landscapes and views that struck me along the way. The subtle and milky colours of Hite Overlook, foggy San Francisco and hazy downtown LA, sunrises and sunsets, the alien salt lakes of Death Valley and the softness of the dunes of Stovepipe Wells.
