Sometimes …

Sometimes when it is so pretty in the desert you just have to veer off the side of the road, slam on the brakes, raise a cloud of dust, get out of the car and just stare at how pretty it is.

This image was shot in Joshua Tree National Park just moments after the sun completely set behind the horizon. I thought it seemed very surreal.  In the post processing, since it was so strange-looking, I decided to try a subliminal composition with slightly increased saturation.  It was my first attempt at doing something with this technique.  If you look closely, you may be able to see just a little bit richer color starting at the yucca at the bottom, then curling up counter-clockwise through the brush and then on to the rocks.
