Desert Vista, Kata Tjuta, AUS

All landscapes are unique.  Yet I am struck by how much they can have in common: desert vistas from places as far apart as Australia and Arizona, for example.

Maybe it has something to do with the one point of continuity: the photographer.

    They are called biomes in ecology, and have less to do with a common observer than with common solutions evolved independently to common environmental challenges.

      John – But deserts are so different from each other! What struck me about the two photos was the similar composition – and that *is* the observer, as well as what is observed.
