Photographer's Note

This may be somewhere in the Amargosa Desert (part of the Mojave Desert), somewhere off the United States Highway 95 (Veterans Memorial Highway), from Las Vegas to Tonopah, Nevada. I guess this is inside or near the Desert National Wildlife Refuge, not far from the Nellis Air Force Range, on the edge of the Nevada Test Site [*] and Nellis Test and Training Range [*].
As this is not Iran, since 1951 there were 925 announced nuclear tests at Nevada Test Site, including atmospheric atomic detonations. Seismic data has indicated many unannounced underground tests.
I'd like to see this in panoramic format, I did try cropping, but I didn't like the result. So, here you see the original, withouth postprocessing. I didn't like the cropping because I like to see both the vegetation and the stormy clouds (some miles away, up on the mountains near Goldfield, there was snow).
Very rough approximate location of the photo in WikiMapia: 36.6316597, -116.3239288. I'd like to know a more precise location.

Isto pode ser no Deserto de Amargosa (parte do Deserto de Mojave), algures perto da estrada 95, de Las Vegas para Tonopah, no estado de Nevada. Isto dentro ou perto da Reserva Nacional de Vida Selvagem do Deserto, no muito longe do Campo de Tiro Nellis da Fora Area. O Sto de Testes do Nevada, para armas nucleares, tambm algures na zona. Como isto no o Iro, desde 1951 houve 925 testes anunciados no Nevada Test Site, inclundo exploses atmicas na atmosfera. Segundo dados ssmicos, tero havido tambm muitos testes subterrneos no anunciados.
Eu gostaria de ver esta imagem em formato panormico, fiz alguns cortes mas no gostei do resultado. Por isso isto est o original, sem processamento. No me agradaram os cortes porque gosto de ver aqui tanto a vegetao como as nuvens de tempestade (alguns quilmetros mais acima, nas montanhas perto de Goldfield, j estava nevando).
