Joshua Tree National Park a few days ago, one of my favourite places to wield a camera. This was about half an hour before sunset when the last rays of the sun lit up these rocks near to skull rock.

Many thanks as always for your time.

A lovely contrast between the blues and browns, and the low pov brings some good textures and foreground interest into play. The gap between the scrub gives a useful lead to the rocks as well.

Well captured shot, all the colours work really well against the striking blue sky. All very sharp, but you do have a pro expensive lens, so it should be! Nice one. Smile James.

Thank you Nathan and Maggie! If you were passing through Southern Caifornial then it would certainly be worth a stop off Maggie, a very photogenic place with quite diverse terrain for a desert.

What a wonderful location, the terrain looks rugged and remote and pretty inhospitable
