Sheep Pass Morning (2016)
Sheep Pass is my favorite place to enjoy sunrise in Joshua Tree National Park. Some mornings the sky ignites in brilliant colors; others it is clear and blue and pure. One thing for sure, it is always an inspiration.
But sometimes the flash inspiration is totally unexpected. In that wonderful first hour of the day when the sun hovers just above the eastern horizon, the desert is bathed in golden light. As I wandered about, enjoying the warmth of the sun piercing the still chilled air, I stumbled upon this location and gasped. Everything was perfect. It was a moment of perfect harmony, a moment I was compelled to capture.
