My February 2017 Photo Of The Month is Fog Bow, an image made in Joshua Tree National Park.
This image was made on an awesome trip with my friend Alex to see Joshua Tree. With stormy weather throughout the park, I suspected we could encounter something dramatic if we headed to the lower elevations of the park.
At first, I thought we would be socked in, but we were able to discern an edge to the fog and some of the clearer elevations. This just happened to be near the Silver Bell Mine, which I had wanted to explore. As we climbed the grade to the mine, we were shocked to find a Fog Bow developing. It started as pure white, until showing the entire kaleidoscope, before disappearing completely.
Such are these fleeting moments. But when they happen, they are truly extraordinary to see.
