About Richard ARNOLD - Richard ARNOLD





Desert Wanderings...


There are so many rare sights in the California Desert and Mountains.


The national parks, and wilderness areas provide light, inspiration and wide open spaces. Joshua Tree National Park, Anza Borrego National Park , Mojave National Preserve, the Sand to Snow National Monument, Mount San Jacinto, San Gorgonio, the Pinto, the Coxcombs, Hayfield, the Salton Sea, Whitewater, Coachella Valley Preserve, Palm Canyon, the San Bernardino National Forest, the Angeles National Forest, the Pacific Crest Trail, the Sierra, and more......


There is much to explore and to discover. You can find here some images of 35 years of hiking and photographing these places, and hopefully things to stir your own imagination...



I am Richard Arnold. Growing up in Australia I spent much time exploring National Parks in the area, and taking photographs. I also collected thousands of photos of the American desert, especially the photos of David Muench, one of the great pioneers of landscape photography. In later years I would meet up with David, a memorable time for me. I moved to the US in the early 1980's working as a broadcaster, and becoming Australia's longest serving foreign correspondent. Photography has been a life-long love, especially the California desert, along with hiking and seeking out the desert's unique offerings......



So much to appreciate....thanks Richard
