Thirsty Souls

Thirsty Souls: Desert Scavenger Hunt

This week we're thirsty for a story to snap.  Our curated scavenger hunt is the perfect photo narrative for capturing a dazzling day in the desert. 

1. Sand Dune

Get dramatic with a dune pic (or two or three). After getting the postcard shot, hop on a buggy or a board for a killer shred under the sun.   You should never pass up a chance to do cactus cardio!

2. Cactus

Shapes and sizes may vary, but the hip desert aesthetic is the same: there's nothing cooler than a cactus.

3. Trail Marker

Map out where you're going and remember where you've been with a few guidepost shots along the way.  We all need a little direction from time to time.

4. Rock Formation

Find a formation like these Jumbo Rocks in Joshua Tree to add scale to your palette.  The devil's in the details, but there's also angelic beauty in the big picture.

5. Wildlife

Let bobcats, coyotes, jackrabbits, and roadrunners take over your feed, and watch the likes roll in.  Who can resist such furry and feathered friends?

6. Night Landscape

The purpose of the desert scavenger hunt is to take an artistic look around, but we'd be remiss if we didn't remind you to look up. Memorialize your own starry night in a desert near you with an inspiring sky-scape to rival Van Gogh's.

7.  Yoga Corner

Find a spot fit for solitude and do a quick meditation.  Remember, we're all mind, body, AND spirit.
