Blog Update - Joshua Tree Drive through!!

Took a drive yesterday, it was cool and windy and very bright out. So the light was not perfect for good pictures, it was a scouting trip for areas I want to explore further and choose the correct time of day. Took some notes on sun position and will make plans to return many times.

It is high desert and lots of Joshua Trees and cactus and some huge boulders. Pretty interesting place and should lend itself to some good photos this winter. Need a nice puffy white cloud day with blue skies and early morning light and late afternoon light to make some photos pop!

On with some pictures....

First a few nice Cholla Cactus in the Cactus Garden!

Now inspired by my friend Clyde Butcher a black and white version.

And finally a nice Joshua Tree there are so many interesting ones to shoot. I am sure I will have a ton of these by the time the winter is over.

First Park function tonight, so will be working and hopefully enough people will be there to start on some good activity shots for their new website and blog!

Stay tuned folks....
