Joshua Tree National Park – Skull Rock

If you’ve never been to Joshua Tree, I would highly recommend making a trip for a couple of days. There is so much to see and the landscape and rock formations are absolutely amazing. I know I’ll be heading back for some hiking when I’m back in the area because that’s one thing I didn’t get to do on my first trip.

For today’s image, I present: Skull Rock.

Very nice! I like the bleached out alien skull you found here, or is that a Conehead skull? Really cool!

Sweet processing bud. Love the look of the rocks, almost looks like they are bones.

Whoa. It does look like a skull.
Cool stuff, Heath. Digging your processing with this set.

Without sounding too repetitive – I totally dig the minimalist processing here. Nicely captured!

OMG dude, that’s an incredible find! Looks like some nostril-flare going on there 🙂

This awesome!

It kinda reminds me of that crystal skull. Good work!

dry, arid and deserted are what spring to mind. At least its hot though!

That’s quite creepy! I like your processing on this one Heath, it seems to suit the place really well.
