Joshua Tree Sunrise
Photo By Gerald Shonkwiler

  • Title: Joshua Tree Sunrise
  • State/Province/Region: California
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Joshua Tree National Monument
  • Nearest Town: Joshua Tree
  • Brief Directions: After entering the National Park, take the road to Keyes View for a great view of the sunrise and sunset. This shot was taken next to the parking area for the viewpoint.
  • Best Season: Winter
  • Description: The sun was about to rise in late December, creating transitioning tones from warm to cool colors. The unique form of a spectacular Joshua Tree was silhouetted against the evolving color palette of the sky. I elected to use a fill flash to add a few more colors to the image and to give more depth to the shot. Normally, an airplane contrail is the bane of landscape photographers, but the glowing one from this "red-eye flight, probably coming into Los Angeles, create a nice balance to the composition and another color "plane."
  • Gear: Nikon D300, Tamron 18-270, Manfrotto Tripod, Nikon SB800 Flash

    I loved your image in the magazine's B&W Issue but this photo is perfect. The lighting and color are gorgeous.

    Thanks Laura!! I walked into this little slot canyon till it was completely dark and thought I'd sort of found nothing much…then turned around and saw THIS. I was gem for sure.
