Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Cholla Garden” by Jake Pineda. Location: Joshua Tree National Park, California.

“Watching the sunrise in the Cholla Cactus Garden is a pleasing yet painful experience,” explains Pineda. “With Chollas lining up as far as the eye can see, it takes a lot of time and patience to really find your composition. This is something I hadn’t even set up for originally but noticed it as I was heading back to my car. I’m glad I took the time to unpack everything and get the shot before the light completely went away because this is my favorite shot I’ve ever taken at this location.”

Nikon D850. Exposure: 1/80 sec., f/11, ISO 64.
