The trees and rocks in Joshua Tree National Park come together to form some fascinating scenes ... like this one where the joshua tree is leaning on the bolder for a little bit of support. What first caught my attention was the sculptured rock; then I noticed how the rock, tree, and sky all came together to form a composition that invites you into the scene.
Catching the first light of the rising sun, Mount Whitney takes on a reddish hue much like the clouds at sunrise ... making it stand out against the blue sky. This beautiful sight can only be seen in the Lone Pine, California area because the surrounding mountains hide Mt. Whitney both north and south of Lone Pine. The blanket of snow, on an early spring morning, was provided by two days of rain and snow in the area.
