Hi everyone. I believe in sharing some of the most gorgeous places in the world and like others here, seeing what others' photography work is like. North America is a magnificent landscape with everything from mountains to plains, deserts to rainforests and major cities to wilderness where not a single soul can be seen for days. I hope to explore more adventures on other continents, but for now, I give you all a showcase of some of the diverse things to behold and be inspired by in North America! Cheers! Also I have the address of videos of various places in Canada if you follow my YouTube link as posted. If you would like to chat about photography, you can reach me at Davidrad18@yahoo.ca Happy photography! If you would like to see an intense thunderstorm with spectacular lightning on my YouTube profile, look for user Davemeister22 and go to the video search tab and type in this: A Severe Thunderstorm With Tornado Potential Strikes Edmonton AB, July 18th, 2009 Happy storm chasing!

David Cure-Hryciuk's conversations

Hi Montanahome,

Thanks for your compliment and feedback. I love the varied and gorgeous scenery of your state and try to come anytime I can, being from Alberta. I guess the wording was confusing and improper on my title. The title has been changed to reflect the high perspective of the shot instead of being "high desert" country. I am curious to know what or if there is a specific elevation that would classify an area as "high desert", do you know? Also, I suppose the term "desert" can be thrown around. There are many classifications of deserts, including subtropical, temperate, polar, semi-arid and arid. If you refer to a desert as being of an arid climate, than that is the strictest precipitation definition of what is "desert". You could also refer to an area with a semi-arid climate as being a type of desert. It is a semi-desert containing some characteristics of a fully arid desert while displaying other characteristics of lusher, wetter prairies and parklands. In my opinion, a semi-desert is a classification of desert that is not as dry as an arid climate, but sufficiently dry enough to be largely devoid of trees and natural lakes. Semi-deserts/ semi-arid climates usually contain an abundance of desert/dryland vegetation such as cacti and barren areas such as badlands. However, they are lusher than fully arid deserts, usually containing large amounts of grass and some trees in isolated areas, or in some places extensive stands of drought resistant trees, such as ponderosa pines and juniper trees. Anyway, I have corrected the climate label to be more accurate.

Cheers,

David
