Photography | Long Shadows in Joshua Tree
Here’s a photo that I took at sunset in Joshua Tree National Park, California. When you’re photographing something at sunset the subject matter is constantly changing as the sun races towards the horizon. Shadows start to stretch across the scene, and the colors are always vibrant and ever-changing. For this image, I love how the shadows seem to be draped over the Yucca tree adding depth and interest to the photo. Sometimes an image needs to be processed in black and white to appreciate all the shapes and negative space without the color distracting us from the composition. The beauty is we live in the digital age and it’s easy to make different variations of one photo. I hope that you enjoy this one.
