I'll Huff, and I'll Puff...

I've always loved this little homestead cabin that's up behind our place near Joshua Tree National Park. It's backyard border is literally the park fence. From our place (where these photos were taken), we have a nice view of it with the Wonderland of Rocks in the background. Recently, dramatic storm clouds were moving quickly behind the Joshua Tree boulders and the wind started to blow hard. It was almost like this little homestead cabin didn't stand a chance against these big scary clouds! I grabbed my camera and telephoto lens to capture these dramatic skies. Fortunately, the little house isn't made out of straw and will likely be around to see many more storms!
