Wind Caves, Anza Borrego

Wind Caves, Anza Borrego

The wind caves are an incredible rock formation located in the Carrizo Badlands of Anza Borrego. Here the exposed sandstone has been eroded into fantastic shapes including dozens of caves. As you might know I really like photographing caves so when I arrived, I immediately went inside to explore and find photographic compositions. It was close to sunset and when I was in one of the larger caves, I noticed that the sun was lined up in the center of the entrance and began to light up the cave walls with a glorious warm light. I had to photograph it. From what I understand, the caves were used as shelters by Native Americans. Imagine living out here and seeing this spectacular view daily!
