Smooth rocks which appear to lean against each other and hold a series of smaller rock formations on top, frame the vivid white moon.
This rock, which had its beginnings as liquid molten, cooled near the earths surface then was gradually exposed through many years of erosion to reveal the smooth jointed rocks we see today. These rock formations are prevalent in the Skull Rock Loop Trail in Joshua Tree National Park.
It is great when nature co-operates with beautiful blue sky, a vivid white moon, and golden colours on the rock formations. Joshua Tree National Park is a photographers wonderland with many stunning scenes to photograph.
