Dusty Roads and Desert Skies

Some of my last sky shots for 2015. I like these big open desert vistas, and the sandy roads that trail off to who knows where?? These were taken in the Joshua Tree / 29 Palms area about two weeks ago.




That's my Jeep in the lower left, partially obscured by a creosote bush. Can you make out the old rusty car on the right? Stay tuned, more to follow on my next post!
Linking with Skywatch Friday.
Wishing you a joyful journey in 2016!!

  6. You are so generous with your photos. Quite a variety of the colors, tones, and textures. When I was a kid and lived in the deserts of central Utah I kind of liked the desert but much preferred the forests. I didn't realize what was right in front of me.

  9. For a desert the changing of the years has not so much influence as for we people but that your stunning images may stay at the level they were the last year.
