Joshua Tree, Death Valley National Park

Joshua Tree, Death Valley National Park

I’ve just returned from an eight day sojourn into Death Valley National Park. Here’s a new image of a Joshua Tree (Lean) made on the rim of Perdido Canyon, overlooking Hidden Valley (just east of Racetrack Valley).

My vintage Wollensak Verito lens, combined with camera movements and shallow aperture (f11) gave me the historomantic effect I desired (historic + romantic; my newly invented word; perhaps you can find a use for it in your vocabulary :)).

Thank you for your thoughts.

  1. Maybe the tree is straight, and the rest of the world is leaning.

    Seriously Michael, this is beautiful. You had some nice dramatic weather which just adds to the beauty of the image. Very dramatic.
