Desert bloom

Share

"After rainfall and once the sun has gone down, the western desert comes to a dazzling bloom. This only happens once or twice a year and will cause incredible floods in the portions of the desert that are at a lower elevation, the waters oftentimes rising up and over 2 meters, creating massive temporary lakes. At the higher altitudes, the sand is covered with the crimson bloom of small vine like plants that otherwise grow slightly below the sands surface. Only when it rains does the sheer size of these plants become apparent as one can see these flowers for miles upon miles into the distance."

very interesting landscape. made me google if deserts can even be flooded. i thought the water would just run through the sand and vanish in giant groundwater rservoirs or something like that, but it seems like it actually happens! well.."the more you know"

I think this is pretty, I'm going to put it in the background
