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!

Lunar Landing!

We were out in Joshua Tree last weekend. I wasn't planning on taking moon shots, but just happened to notice the moon coming in for a landing over the Joshua Tree boulders (Saturday, 12.12.15 at 6:30 PM). Right place, right time!! These are straight out of the camera except for some image cropping.

View From an Old Truck

I like to imagine what it would be like driving the old stakebed GMC truck that sits in my yard decaying. Here's the view out the front window. Those hills in the distance are the northern boundary of Joshua Tree National Park.
Of course, this truck is just "yard art" and is beyond refurbishing. But, still, fun to imagine what it would be like driving it down an old desert road.

And here's the old desert road I would drive down first...
