The Joshua Tree

We arrived in Joshua Tree in time to find a location to shoot the sunset.  I had the great idea to go off-road down what seemed to be an endless dirt road to nowhere.  I had this vision of a joshua tree forest with the sun setting over the mountain range.  Well, after a good solid hour into the desert, we still hadn’t the forest I had in mind.  The decision was made to turn around and head back empty handed.  Just before getting back on the paved road I saw this lone giant.  It was getting pretty dark so I popped it with the off camera flash and came home with a winner.
