I think it's the road to the raod to Key's view ;-)..LOL...But it doesn't matter - what really matters is this magnificent perspective you took here - just Fabulous, Steve!! Great morning (looks like) light and I am learning something here becaus I had a heck of a time trying to compose / frame the "forests" of Joshua Trees...never could get it least not to MY satisfaction...this is masterfu - l so well done as usual, Steve!!

ps - BTW you probably know this, but with regard to Rayak's reference, the famous "U2" Joshua Tree image...that tree they used for the album cover is miles and miles from the park..I lost the link but it's true ...crazy, huh?
