    Impressive detail, exposure and color. I suspect it might make an equally effective b&w for Ansel Adams fans. Well done.

      Well Steve thank you and I might just try it in b&w and post it.

    This is a different perspective John. I love the rocks in the foreground 🙂

      Thank you Dahlia.  Even thought I go to the same place I try to give a different look.

    Pretty close to that wash with those clouds John. I’ve been told that rain miles away can suddenly fill those things with raging torrents. I’m sure you know what you’re doing though.

    Another great image. The sky is sure cooperating.

      At the time I took this we had not had any rain, just a drizzle here and there.  Yes the washes are something you need to keep an eye on.  Before I moved to Europe the house I owned had a wash about 1/8th of a mile from it.  One evening coming home from work it was full with about 4 feet of water and I was unable to pass.  It took 3 hours for it to subside.  Not long after I moved to Las Vegas the Imperial Hotel and Casino had water running into through front doors and out the back during one of our heavy rains.  Since that time the county have built flood control consisting of huge basins to retain water to mitigate damage.

    Nice Shot John, like the different  foreground perspective.

    Nice pano John. The thing which immediately grabbed my attention was the abundance of trees/bushses other than Joshuas around the wash area. Perhaps  Joshuas prefer a more arid environment and don’t like too much of a good thing (water)?

      The Joshuas like water but you are right, not too much.  These in the pic are Mesquite and Creosote Bush.
