Nearing sunset in Hidden Valley, Joshua Tree National Park. I liked how this photo looked more in color, so there is no black and white version of this. I love the shape of the three trunks, and also love the buttery glow of the setting sun. Everyone I ran into was trying to take photos of the sun setting. I was far more interested in photographing the sun using its warm rays to “paint” the fantastic landscape.
Allegedly, the Joshua Tree was so named due to pilgrims feeling that it looked like the prophet raising his arms toward heaven. This tree seems to evoke that feeling.
