Orange Skies

Joshua Tree National Park, CA. Just a little sliver of the sun was all that was left of the day...
No clouds, but a beautiful orange sunset...
A magical moment in time for hiking on the rocks...
Linking with Skywatch Friday. Have a great 4th of July weekend!!

  4. 3 excellent photos. Nice rich colours and compositions. Interesting how you have used the silhouette of the foreground to contrast against the beautiful sky.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  19. Hi there! I was doing a Google search on something in Joshua Tree and a link to one of your posts was included in the results. I followed the link and was surprised by a few things. Several of the people that I know follow and comment on your posts. Also, it appears that we also like some of the same stuff. I love JT and have been going there my entire life. Anyway, I like what I see here and now I'm following.
