Joshua Tree: Sunrise, Sunshine, Sunset


Looking back through these photos of Joshua Tree in the cold depths of New York January is pretty painful. That light. That silence. Those multi-colored, ever-changing skies. Watching the sun rise and set every day. Disconnected from the rest of the world. Is this real life?


Reading about the vandalism happening in Joshua Tree National Park made me even angrier and upset with the governance of this country than I am on an everyday basis. It's such a magical, wondrous, spectacular place. All Los Angelenos seem to describe it as "spiritual". And while that often winds the cynical Brit/East Coaster in me up, they're kinda right.


It's hard to describe the park itself (and the surrounding space—we stayed nearer Pioneertown), but hopefully these pictures (narrowed down from the selection of 300+ I took over 4 days) share a little bit of the otherworldly beauty.
