The arid deserts of the Colorado Plateau in the American West are usually barren, but on rare occasions of rainfall, the landscape can bloom with wildflowers. Photographer Guy Tal, who specializes in the landscapes of the Colorado Plateau, documents the rare desert blooms in stunning photographs. According to Tal, the scorpionweed and bee plant flowers shown in the images bloom for just a few days before disappearing for periods lasting several years. There is more landscape photography on Tal’s website.
