beautiful Joshua Tree National Park, California!

Two deserts, one park, this is Joshua Tree National Park.  There are few places where you can photograph two vastly different desert environments in one day. The two deserts are defined by elevation, the high desert is part of the Mojave Desert here you will find the parks name sake the Joshua Tree, you will have the chance to photograph this tree in all of its twisted glory.  The tallest Joshua tree in the world is also located here in the park estimated to be 385 years old.  The Colorado desert is the low desert and starts below 3000 feet elevation. The lower desert is hotter and dryer and this is where you will find the Cholla Cactus, at sunrise and sunset the spines of the cactus light up and almost look like they are glowing.


This workshop will allow you to explore some of the most gorgeous photographic nooks and crannies that Joshua Tree National Park has to offer.
