Joshua Tree

Strong Joshua tree in front of me, beautiful sunset behind me refracted through my lens with a crystal prism. 
So thrilled to be taking pictures again especially in this peaceful place called Joshua Tree National Park. It's a resilient environment that thrives despite the harsh temperatures, strong winds, and limited water. The park is a close drive for me but it's far enough to get away from the hustle and bustle of life. You stand in the middle of the desert and can't hear a thing. On a clear night, you can see every possible visible star and galaxy. I always feel more grounded when I return home from a visit.
