U is for Ugly

This is a sad sight, the blight of the Mojave in southern California - JUNK! The desert is actually a very delicate environment. Harsh temperatures and very low rainfall but a stark and very peaceful beauty can be found. I hate to see trash just left wherever.
This is just outside of Daggett, California -( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daggett,_California)
That tire adds so mch to the shot!

It is very sad to see litter just scattered about a landscape like this. But you have captured it beautifully. The sharp contrast really adds to the bleakness of it.

Well done.

Very sad sight indeed but it made for a very good photo with the descriptive word. I also like your framing of choice.

A very evocative image and well described.

Amazing shot and processing...

nice shot despite the focal trash; looks hot enough for the rubber to melt

@susale The desert is actually a rather interesting place. A bit hot this time of year but so many weird things out there.

@graemestevens Thank you. The desert is Zen in a strange way.

@megpicatilly It seems some people have no real respect for nature. I guess they might feel like who cares if 'I' just trash an unused place.

@sdutoit Thank you, glad that there wasn't too much other garbage there.

@brett101 It did, didn't it. So maybe I got lucky?

@maskerade Thank you, I am kinda passionate about stupid lazy people.

@kali66 True, hadn't thought about that.

@chard Maybe but it has been there awhile.

@frappa77 Thank you so much.

@francoise Thank you, the average June temperature in Daggett is about 100 but as they say, it's a dry heat. In my book, hot is hot!

Nice shot. This is a very familiar site where I live - dumped tyres and no end of household appliances along with burned out cars and motorbikes. The latter are usually ones that have been stolen first. The things I see around the park are just awful.. and it makes me mad too.. I wouldn't expect to see a tyre in the desert though.. I guess the people got a flat and just dumped it. I tried looking at your link but it doesn't seem to recognise it.
