Leaning Joshua Tree and clouds~SkyWatch Friday 010610

Joshua Tree National Park is such an incredible place to visit and take photographs! The changing mood of the clouds, sky, and rocks make for some interesting colors. I found this leaning joshua tree, growing near some rocks. Clouds from a coming storm were moving in and it rained the next day. SkyWatch Friday for January 6, 2011.

That Joshua tree is fascinating...it looks like it's bending and moving with the sky. Great photo.

That leaning tree with the lovely blue skies as a background makes for a very nice Sky Watch.

I like your description of the elements of your photo as much as I like the photo.

Please stop by Portland Oregon Daily Photo to see my first ever embedded video. It shows my younger son Leland bouldering at The Circuit in Portland, Oregon, as filmed by his older brother Lamont, who also boulders.

Beautiful picture! We love the whole southwest area. There is so much beauty here. It may look sparse but if you look closely, the textures and color are amazing! Thanks for sharing these. Lynne-Desert Shine Jewelry.

Thanks for all of the photos and information from Joshua Tree. I ams SO EXCITED about our trip in February (as living in IL, going into national parks just boosts the spirit!).

Another friend of ours through a volunteer group is traveling there next week. Who knew... So nice to share adventures!

Questa รจ un'immagine molto particolare...
il blu del cielo nello sfondo della foto e questa pianta che tenta di sopravvivere.
Grande effetto !
Buona serata :)
