This page has links to few selected desert photo images of the type that I use as reference for paintings. The idea is to use the images as backdrops or as detail. You will need to use your imagination to place the Indians, pioneers, homesteaders, cavalry, and miners in the images.
     The images are made from 35mm slides or prints from negatives. All images are presented in JPG (JPEG) format.
