Joshua Tree in Monochrome
So last Friday I posted Desert Skies - Storm On The Way! Well, the storm hit mid-morning and dropped a fair amount of rain on Joshua Tree National Park. By about 4 PM, we were starting to get cabin fever, so we drove into the park. It was cold, with light rain and fog. My initial thought was this was a bust (from a photography point of view). But as the fog and clouds continued to move in, things got really interesting. The Park was practically empty, but the few people we did see all seemed to be photographers! One car kept pulling off at the same turn outs I was taking, and he had one of those big, white, expensive Canon pro telephoto lenses, so I was in good company! Because of the fog and clouds, I decided to post everything in black and white.
Joshua Tree National Park... empty! A B&W image except for the yellow lines in the street.
