Heart of Joshua Tree by benkhill Heart of Joshua Tree by benkhill
Moon rises over a unique combination of Juniper tree and slab of stone taken in Joshua Tree National Park. Light painting with lantern covered in layers of colored paper for the desired natural warmth.

My first ever Daily Deviation! what a great way to wake up in the morning. I've come to really like this community in the past few weeks and thanks for all of your support. A big thanks to AssassinM for the suggestion and to Trevg for featuring my photograph.

Beautiful, a deserved DD. The tree and rock are otherworldly alone, but with the night sky, they're even more beautiful. Well captured and congratulations!

And very well done to you, the hard work paid off with this lovely image. Captures the wilderness of J-tree, and the rather otherworldly feel of the tree and stone.

Wow. The tree looks almost alive in this. For a moment, I actually thought it was moving towards that rock in the distance. Excellent job! You really brought the scene to life. :heart:

Amazing. This photo has so many different things going for it. The shapes, the amazing sky, the light, the colors, and the similarity between the tree and its fruits and the sky and its stars. This truly is an amazing capture, and definitely work the DD! Congrats! :clap:
