Have you ever seen a face in the rocks? This one was pretty hard to miss with the two round rocks balanced on a diamond shaped rock resembling a nose.
I made this image at the Jumbo Rocks campground in Joshua Tree National Park just before sunset when the light was shining directly on the rocks making them appear a warm orange shade. I used my telephoto lens to zoom in on the “face.”
After sunset, when the sun had dipped below the horizon and the sky turned pink I used a wider focal length to take in more of the scene and the surrounding rocks. The light was very soft and even during twilight and with no direct light there were no shadows at all.
I keep reminding myself to include people in my photographs so I asked Ray to scramble up on the neighboring rocks and look out at the scene below.
It was a beautiful evening indeed.
