The sun sets in the west, illuminating spray-painted headstones jutting out from Sand Hill cemetery. It took me an hour to find it. Ultimately, the small dirt roads forking into the sagebrush led me to some artificial color on the landscape, where I discovered the public cemetery. Shot at f8 at 1/250 with a 35mm lens.
