Jumbo Rocks, Joshua Tree National Park, taken 28 April 2012 during my a 24-hour photographic trip to the desert.
Usually, I get an idea that the photos I’m taking might be great in black and white. Not so here. It was only when I was fiddling around in Photoshop that I felt the drama and emotional potency of the photo was greatly enhanced in black and white. With photos or any sort of art, I go with the gut.
Taken with the Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8, which I just purchased very recently. And you know how it is with a new lens. You must use it *everywhere*! I never took the 18-200mm VR or the 50mm f/1.4 out of the bag. I took this photo with an especially small aperture to create the rays emanating from the sun at the crown of the rock.
Equipment: Nikon D90, Tokina AT-X 116 Pro DX AF 11-16mm f/2.8 Lens For Nikon
