With even moderate conditions, deserts seem to put out the most incredible array of colors in low light. Here at Joshua Tree National Park in the southern California desert this was certainly the case. This was the first time I’d been there and I was so excited by the sheer beauty of the moonscape-like topography of the area I was laughing and crying at the same time. It seems I could barely move, or was it that I was moving so quickly, I was so enamored. I’ve been back twice since this first encounter not quite 4 years ago.
