Burning Man, Black Rock Desert, Nevada, 8/07

The Burning Man festival in Black Rock Desert, Nevada, was an amazing experience. The magnificent art, glorious mutant vehicles and shimmering neon nightscapes were highlights. I have posted a few favorite photos from my Burning Man debut. This year attendance surged to 40,000 festival-goers. It was a love-hate experience for me so we shall see if I return to Burning Man.
