I've long been intrigued by this arrangement of granite boulders in Joshua Tree National Park. The round boulder wedged in an angular space at the top is especially striking. For years I wanted to photograph this arrangement, but I didn't know where these rocks were located. It turns out I was within easy walking distance from them on a number of visits to the park, except I always chose to hike west instead of east. These are located at the east end of the Jumbo Rocks campground, almost due south of the town of Twentynine Palms.
I took only three photographs on this particular occasion, each with a Hasselblad 501cm and its square format, but each with a different lens. This is the last of the tree, with the sun very low in the blue sky and casting a distinctly reddish hue on the rocks.
