Joshua Tree

Joshua Tree National Park, while not immediately noticeable as a beautiful place, it's remoteness makes it one of the best places in California to take photos of the Milkyway. At night the sky lights up and our Galaxy is right in your face.

This night I was planning on taking photos of rock feature in a nearby part of the park, but a small light from a campsite several hundred feet away made it impossible to get the photo I needed. So, I headed back towards a particularly large grouping of Joshua Trees, and walked through thick brush at midnight looking for the perfect tree. When I found the tree, I had to wait a little bit longer for the Milkyway to line up perfectly with the tree. It was a long night, but this made it all worth it.
