Joshua Tree Nights

Last week I visited Joshua Tree National Park overnight to photograph the Milky Way and the comet Neowise. Though the days were in the high 90s, it was comfortable in the evening, getting as low as 70° overnight. The sky was completely clear.

Sage and Sunrise

A few years ago, I hiked up this hilltop near my home and was struck by the abundance and density of these vibrant purple flowers. I had never seen them before and have never since seen so many clustered in one place. I made a note of the time of year – late June and early July. On the following year, I returned around the same time for the same wonderful display. Later that year I returned in the fall (without the flowers) to capture the sunrise. You can see those photos here. Just a few days ago, I returned again, this time to capture the sage and sunrise.
