Old Chevy Truck

December Sunrise

This cold December morning, by special invitation, I went to the back side of Joshua Tree, to some privately owned land. Three of my guy friends, Shad (the owner of the land), Chuck and Scott ventured out with me on the photographic excursion. We saw a spectacular sunrise, an old, abandoned chevy truck and some of the most amazing back country the hi-desert has to offer. Here are a few of my images

This is an image that started out as a part of the ‘Dead Wood Project’, but turned into a whole new image as I looked further to the surrounding Joshua Tree landscape.  This is a stitched image containing 12 frames displaying juxtaposed nature, the living Juniper, hidden by the rock formation and the dead standing tall on the top.

Joshua Tree Clouds

This old tree stump stands in contrast to the cloudy sky this boding afternoon. The threat of a fantastic sunset drove me out into the Park, it was not to be this afternoon as the clouds took over and made for a dreary late afternoon drive back to Yucca Valley.
