Brief Directions

Enter Joshua Tree National Park from the west entrance. Turn off of Park Road into the Boy Scout Trail parking lot. Walk along the trail till you find your composition facing west.

Description

I walked out along Boy Scout trail shortly before the sun dipped behind the mountain range. The sun filled the atmosphere with incredibly golden light. The composition I was after required shooting very close to the sun, too close to avoid lens flare. So I set up in the shade of a Joshua Tree just out of the frame. The dynamic range was off the scale but a 5 shot HDR captured it all. Golden hour at sunset is by far the most beautiful time in the desert and this photograph captures the joy and inspiration I feel.
