During a previous visit to Joshua Tree, I wasn’t able to get a decent photo of the trees, and on this day, there was some weird weather and cloud cover all day. It wasn’t looking good, then at sunset some clouds broke and the sun shined through, lighting up the trees while the clouds in the background stayed deep blue. I shot like crazy while it lasted and this was my favorite of the bunch.
