arch rock in joshua tree national park

Joshua Tree is an extremely well laid out Park providing easy access for photographers of almost any fitness level. Amazing photo ops are available right from your car, very close to the road or within 1/2 mile or less from your car if you’re not inclined to hike. The best part is that the Park is less than 5 hours from Scottsdale! We’re eager to go back. (Click Here for info on Camping)

Arch Rock is 1/2 mile round trip from the parking area.

Joshua Tree National Park is perfect for infrared so my converted 5D got a workout this week. Today’s image has a glow courtesy of Lightroom’s Clarity slider. Blue skies come from Lightroom’s HSL sliders and Photoshop’s Hue/Saturation. (Nik or Topaz might have been faster but they tend to add too much noise).

Capturing stars is a challenge! The most challenging for me is staying up late 🙂   (Click Here for info on Camping)
