Some days the sunsets and sunrises are just amazing!!! I had driven hard and fast to get to Joshua Tree National Park for afternoon light, looking for flowers and potential landscapes. But the sky thickened with cloud cover and everything was flat and diffused, enough so that I really felt it wasn’t worth searching for a landscape photo, so I turned into the campground. After the sun dropped below the mountains, I figured it was really over, but you just never know what lies beyond the mountains, at the horizon, and everyone in the campground was surprised and delighted to have such an amazing show of color!! Sometimes, the best photographs are the ones you are least anticipating.

Enjoy, and thanks for visiting,
