Recent Storms Create Amazing Cloud Displays in Joshua Tree National Park

The other day, I saw these tremendous clouds looming up behind the house and I thought, there must be some good shots to be had in the Park. So, off I went, taking pictures along the way. When I got to Ryan, I turned around because all the action seemed to be heading toward the West entrance. On the way home, I had to cross several rivers of water heading down Quail Springs Rd. Quite an adventure!

Amazing Cloud Displays Lately

We're all chanting 'More rain, more rain'! That's how it is in the desert, you either love it when it rains softly, or you hate it when it comes down in a tumult (because your driveway washes away or your Inn floods!). Either way, it's always an event and we wouldn't have it any other way. Here's a few cloud displays from early morning in the Park.

Fantastic Light in the Park

We were riding our bikes over by Cap Rock the other morning and I was able to get these two shots of the moon going down and an otherworldly view of rocks and Joshua Trees in the valley.

Another Beautiful Morning in Paradise

Getting up early and catching the light makes all the difference. This morning we had some more wonderful clouds due to recent rains. If this keeps up through the fall, we'll have a nice Spring.
