Sunrise in Joshua Tree

Today we go back to Joshua Tree National Park for a little sunrise.

Earlier this year I joined a few photog buddies for a weekend camping trip to Joshua Tree Park.  I wasn’t sure what to expect from the park but I was excited to get to meet a few of the guys for the first time.

The park turned out to be great with its barren wasteland look coupled with the Joshua Trees.  Our only complaint that night was the overnight temperature.  I say this because even the Canuck said it was cold.  When that happens you know you are in trouble.

Since most of us didn’t sleep well that night getting up at sunrise was easy enough.  At the break of dawn we all spread out like a special forces group planning an attack.  Armed with cameras and tripods we combed the area setting up for the sunrise.  I can still remember the numbness in my hands.

Good times!
