Lightning in Joshua Tree National Park

A rare socal thunderstorm, this one far enough away that you couldn’t hear the thunder. It moved very slowly, staying in place for over an hour, so there was plenty of time to get shots. It was also a very active storm, setting the intervalometer to 10 second exposures 1 second apart resulted in nearly every photo having lightning. The clouds (and lightning) were pretty concentrated in this one area, so there was a good view of stars along with the storm.

Sunset at Joshua Tree National Park

Decided to head down to Joshua Tree National Park to do a little night photography.   On the way, we spotted this dramatic sunset. Of course we had to pull over and get some shots!
