Across the White Playa

Here’s a new series of photos from Burning Man this year. I put captions below each one so you can find out more about what is going on…

One morning I rode out to the main temple to watch the sunrise. Clouds are fairly rare out there, so I was hoping for some nice color situations, but I didn’t expect anything quite this colorful!

That giant pirate ship in the background is actually a huge vehicle that rolls from camp to camp. In the foreground are two of the many people that walk around in the middle of the day with ornate umbrellas.

A fire dancer performs in front of one of the many art displays that is set to burn in just a few hours or so.

I was stuck in the middle of the desert just when a massive sandstorm enveloped everything. I made very slow progress towards my destination. Finally, after about ten minutes of sand-blindness, it opened up a little to reveal the towering Anubis here.

This is the ornate entrance to the gypsy wagon. You can see how ornate and detailed the patterns and lighting is across the facade. And don’t you want to go inside and see what kind of characters have magically appeared?

    All of your burning man shots are awesome Trey – uh oh though – one of them is the shot from the Strand – jet lag – already?? πŸ™‚

    Wow! They rebuilt The Strand in the desert, now that is impressive! Don’t know that it really fits in with what seems to be the norm for Burning Man.

  • Wonderful photos, Trey!! Thanks for sharing. Have a great Sunday!!

  • the second to last image can’t be from burning man, some kind of mall or shopping center.

  • Peter Sundstrom

    Love the replica of The Strand in Nevada. Very realistic. πŸ˜‰

  • Not to further state the obvious… but a Sydney shot has managed to slip into this particular Burning Man series…

    Good stuff, Trey!

  • Andrea Boyle

  • This was my fault. Fixed. πŸ™‚

  • Just amazing!!
