Burning Man Festival 2007






































































Burning Man is an eight-day-long annual festival that takes place in Black Rock City, a temporary city on the playa of the Black Rock Desert in Nevada, 90 miles (150 km) north-northeast of Reno, ending on the American Labor Day holiday in September. The event is described by organizers as an experiment in community, radical self-expression, and radical self-reliance and takes its name from the ritual of burning a large wooden sculpture of a man on the sixth day. The event is organized by Black Rock City, LLC, under the guidance of founder Larry Harvey. In 2007, 47,097 people participated in The Burning Man Project.

A great photo set. Never been to Burning Man, but it's on my list. The aerial shots really put it into perspective--how large the event is.

Great pics! I've been there twice, but for some reason I can never take pictures... Sometimes is better to capture them with the mind's eye ;)

Great pics. Roughly the first half of them are actually from 2006. Cheers.
