So why would my good friend Jeremy Long and I venture into Joshua Tree National Park in the afternoon heat? Chasing down arches would be the reason. See below for a gallery of images taken in the Coxcomb Rocks area of Joshua Tree National Park. Continue reading

Overlooked 2015 Photographs
I have a lot of overlooked 2015 photographs. Much of this comes from taking the images but not getting around to processing them at home! I get busy just like everybody, so I thought I would make this post and show a few that I have overlooked.
The Hungry Hippo
This is a cool rock formation near Jaguar Rock in Joshua Tree National Park. Curiously, this was the first time I photographed it. This was just after sunrise in temperatures in the low 20s.
To me, this rock reminded me of the Hungry Hungry Hippos game from my childhood.
Storm Over Borrego Springs
This was a great photo day where I took a great image from the Borrego Springs overlook on S-22 of a rainbow, but I neglected to process many of the storm images from the valley floor. The weather was very impressive on that day.
A Storm At The Motor Transport Museum
The Motor Transport Museum in Campo is such a unique place, with possibly hundreds of old decaying vehicles from brands I didn’t even know existed. The San Diego Photo Club went there on a trip, when a storm hit, and I never got around to processing these images. The vibrant colors with the moody cloud cover makes for a great contrast. I need to revisit soon.
The Desert View Tower
I have always ignored this place, although it is an important landmark for my Old Highway 80 Photography Project.
This was the last stop along US Route 80 before it descended the In-Ko-Pah Gorge to the Imperial Valley. The road ends here, but concrete remnants follow Myer Creek all the way to the town of Ocotillo.
I have many more overlooked images, but I thought this selection would make for a nice post.
Thank you for reading, and I hope you enjoy the images!
