Joshua Tree Photo Workshop 2023

Joshua trees at sunrise in Mojave Desert, Joshua Tree National Park, California

April 5,2023 – April 9,2023 /

Joshua Tree is yet another great destination in spring or late winter. When temperatures dip and late winter storms still rage, southern California is an oasis of warmth and Joshua tree is a study of positive and negative space; as the giant monolithic rocks play beautifully against the graceful Joshua Trees growing at their base.
