Cool, cloudy January evening in Joshua Tree National Park, Mojave Desert. I photographed and scouted a bit for a night portrait photo shoot the next evening. Illuminated with a handheld ProtoMachines LED2 and a full moon heavily diffused by Mother Nature's largest softbox. Thanks!

I knew it ... the big lilies don't sleep at night. Lol ! Nice image, Ken. I join a couple of daytime pictures, when the Joshua Trees really doze off ...



Best Regards

Great lighting of the tree. I like the red tints mixed into the overall lighting of the tree. The tree stands out amid it rocky background. Beautiful capture.

They're always slightly awake, peeking at you. Cool images. I love that place.

Thanks, I definitely wanted to separate the tree from the background a bit, and the red tints helped do that without looking too hugely weird. I mean, a Joshua Tree at night already is weird, but you know what I mean....

A beautiful image Ken, and your lighting treatment is just the right enhancement of the tree.
