Again a new Chris Luckhardt gallery! The American southwest is a photographer’s dream. Its vividly colorful and rapidly changing landscapes are uniquely photogenic. Its primarily hot and dry climate is perfectly suited for preserving abandoned cars, signs, airplanes and a plethora of ghost towns. Thanks to light pollution laws, the night sky is especially dark; the environment is perfectly suited for star trails photography in the desert landscape.! This is the second in a series of photos featuring abandonments of the American southwest, the first series of photos can be seen here. Chris Luckhardt is a Canadian photographer, based in Toronto. Follow him on on Twitter and Facebook.
Tucson, Arizona is the home of several airplane graveyards. Its dry climate is ideal for the storage and preservation of decommissioned passenger and military aircraft and parts. Photo by Chris Luckhardt
