Joshua Tree N.P. on a Moonlit Night

Posted by

This very old image was captured way back in 2007 during our second visit to Joshua Tree National Park. I was such a rookie, I was not even aware that the moon would be full on this night...but it was, and I learned very quickly that I needed to become more aware of such things.
This image is definitely not the best quality, I captured it with a little point and shoot digital...but the colors came out thank goodness...I hope you enjoy this old image.

** Staples Singers - "Respect Yourself"

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
; Earth Wind and Fire
