More photo information

Like many outstretched arms, the branches of a joshua tree extend skyward as twilight heralds the end of another day in the desert.

The glorious shades of twilight provide the back light which silhouette the tree, making it appear black along with the surrounding landscape.

Joshua Trees are the largest members of the Yucca genus and are only found only in the southwest USA. They thrive in the arid soils of the Mojave Desert of which Joshua Tree National Park is a part.
