This sunset photo was taken near the town of Pahrump, Nevada on November 24, 2021. The photo shows a dust cloud that was produced by a windstorm against the background of the Shadow Mountain. Pahrump Valley is located in the Mojave Desert and is roughly 60 miles (100 km) west of Las Vegas, Nevada. The region borders Death Valley, however, is not subjected to the same scorching summer temperatures because of its elevation.
