Joshua Tree National Park // The Spirit of the Heart
This image is my favorite of Joshua Tree National Park. I love the drastic light hitting the tree and the storm clouds parting in the background. I shot this on Christmas Day 2018 when the park had been shutdown due to the federal government shutdown. There were few people which made for the perfect photographic opportunity.

What would Joshua Tree National Park be without the crazy "Dr. Suess" trees and magnificent boulder formations. These three images while very different... all capture the park essence.

The angles within the frame of the image is what works for me. It's as if there is a much needed relationship going on between the boulders and clouds that makes this image one of my favorites.
Joshua Tree National Park // Rock Solid
This rock formation with climbers on top, and the tree branches in the foreground was a composition that I was out to capture the whole day that I spent at the park. It took a couple of hours of waiting, but success was finally achieved. I am sure the climbers felt the same way.
