Joshua Tree National Park  is a United States National Park that is located in the Southern California Desert. The park encompasses nearly 800,000 acres of the Mojave and Colorado Deserts, conserving two separate desert ecosystems at different altitudes. The name of the park is derived from the distinctive Joshua Tree, a tall-growing variety of the yucca genus that grows prevalently within its boundaries.

Excellent view to this impressive landsacpe with the color which give a nice contrast with the superb blue of the sky. The vegetation and especially the palmtree arise very well.
Have a nice Sunday,

A fine composition of this rather fascinating landscape. The queer shaped trees in a diagonal line draw the viewer into the scene taking them towards the pile of rocks that looks like a cairn built by some giant. The image is well presented with good light, colours and sharpness.

The tree is well placed in the image and together with the rocks stands well against the blue sky. The light has been well managed and the sharpness is very good on this desert landscape.
Have a nice Sunday

Un paysage impressionnant. Les arbres offrent des formes torturées et trčs belles. On dirait que les rochers ont été empilés de main d'hommes.

Good catch of the stony pyramid surrounded by Joshua trees in the fg. Excellent sharpness & I like the warm cold color contrast between the yellow ochre / ocher & blue sky. Tfs & Merry Xmas!

I wish I could be standing in front of that landscape with its amazing "rocky pyramid"! A good shooting angle creating perspective along the trees. The natural colours are nicely rendered.

This small rocky hill seems look like a cairn. The small almost bare trees are very attractive in the composition. The light, the colors, the neatness are excellent. Bravo.
Have a nice day

interesting rick formation and flora.

Dejavu for me, with your Joshua Tree Park image.
Fine view of the pyramid of eroded granite boulders placed my Nature, rather than humans.
Including the Joshuas and a climpse of the road adds to the depth, and scale.
PS: I come to the Palm Springs area every winter to spend some time away from the cold northern Calif.

The forms of landscape and vegetation are completely unusual and interesting in this beautiful natural scene. A highly picturesque view, bright light, wonderful colors and excellent quality of the picture!
josepmarin (57953) 2011-12-23 6:52
a nice graphical combination of the peculiar rocky formations and the interesting flora of this place, in a very clean and illuminated-well image, with beautiful colors.
The composition is structured well, and the elements are attractive at sight.
A good work.
I wish you and your family a Happy Christmas.
fanni (14381) 2011-12-23 12:36
what a juxtaposition! a tree and a rocky hill!
In this shot the tree looks tall and relatively big, as compared to the hill... but in reality it's vice versa, I presume :)
Very nice inclusion of some light clouds as well! very good for the balance of the composition :)
Wish you a Merry Christmas!:)

Hello Dear Lakshmi !
I have been to the west once a long time ago. And this is how I learned how large the country is. This scenery from the west, I wonder if the mound that we see is something man-made or all natural. The trees in front of the mound are intriguing looking also. I have seen some cactus plants so tall and with their flowers so large. The trip was really something that I could never forget. The weather over there was so dry that doing laundry was very easy. This photograph makes me recall the trip. This photograph that is presented to us is one of the keenest image associated with the west. I would very much like to return there one day. This is a lovely photo full of reminders of the west.
With my very best and warm regards,
Have a very lovely Sunday, Lakshmi
