Dinosaurs in the Desert!!

We were driving along Highway 62 in Joshua Tree last weekend and stopped to take some pics of these dinosaurs. It's kind of bizarre seeing these along the side of the road, so I used my iPhone (which adds to that surreal feeling).

Had to laugh at this one... from this angle it appears the dinosaurs
are tied up to keep them from wandering out in the street!
Linking to Skywatch Friday.
We took the Jeep out into the desert in the late afternoon for a photo session... mostly with my DSLR (got some great ones that I will post later), but I did take a few more with my iPhone. Fun stuff, and it gives the photos a totally different feel!




Happy Skywatch Friday

  16. Love the "last service 100 miles"sign effects,that is how they always look to me just a little heat warped and scary! Who ever is the caretaker of those dinos is doing a good job,sometimes you just have to tether your creatures to keep 'em off the road!

  17. Hi there - when I walk home from work I pass a house that has a T.rex in the back garden made of corrugated iron - its looks great! But I dont think I can get a worthwhile picture of it without looking like a house breaker!

    Your pics of the dinos are great!
