The last photo (above) was snapped with my iPhone in the very last moment of available light.

Joshua Tree has a way with me. The trees are truly alive. There can be no other human in sight yet you feel hundreds of distinctive lives around you. My hopes for each trip I’ve made to Joshua Tree have been to shoot an amazing sunset. While each trip has posed unique and individual weather and scenery offerings, May 1st was a trip to remember. I felt so privileged to be there in that moment, completely alone (my husband had gone for a sunset jog). I found myself shaking my head in awe, repeating thank you, thank you, thank you. Thank you to myself for being in the moment, thank you to my husband for always being willing to go the extra mile with me for an adventure, thank you to my dad for being up there somewhere in that sunset, and thank you God for a greatness and glory that is limitless. I always say, the sunset is God’s way of letting us know that it’s good down here but it’s great up there.

I went once. I traveled again. And with this memory I will stay forever.

Where have you seen your most amazing sunset? I’d love to know!
