My First Desert Storm
For a guy from New Jersey, the the power of the desert is very impressive. It is a harsh environment that requires strength to survive, let alone thrive in. Yet it is also a place of amazing beauty and Joshua Tree National Park is a great example of that. This is why I keep being drawn back there.
As many times as I’ve been in the desert, this was the first time I got to experience a storm first hand. What looked like the makings of a spectacular sunset was overwhelmed when storm clouds blew into Joshua Tree from the north. The pretty light of the golden hour quickly became a dark storm light like I’ve never seen before and It was a treat, a little scary treat, to be able to witness and photograph it.
