I went out to take pictures of the Joshua Tree’s under the stars but unfortunately the clouds didn’t cooperate. However, the fast moving clouds combined with the full moon made for some interesting compositions as well and I came away with several images that I liked from the middle of the Mojave desert in the full moon.
Joshua Tree Under the Moonlight (Joshua Tree National Park)
This was shot with a 12-second exposure at ISO 640. There is a city in the distance (hence the orange glow) but not sure if that is from Las Vegas, Los Angeles or Palm Springs. Geography isn’t my strong suit.
