Joshua Tree National Park – Piles

Today, another shot of the very interesting rock formations in Joshua Tree.

Although these rocks are actually quite large, I enjoy how the wide angle of this shot makes the look like a little pile of pebbles just dropped into the desert.

These almost look like a pile of bones. These rock formations are really crazy. Awesome shot!

My only problem with a shot such as this is that I have absolutely no idea of the scale. You’re right that they do look like they could just be a pile of pebbles, but whether they are, or if in fact they are mountainous, is beyond my scope of vision – it’s possible I’m missing the awe value due to this.

Really cool image Heath! Those pepples/rocks/boulders are crazy looking!

Once again, great processing man, and the rocks do look crazy. Tend to agree a bit with Murph about the scale, but I like your composition just the same.

This is a great series, Heath. I’d love to see all of them grouped on a wall.

Square crop wins. Digging the series
