It has been quite some time since my last contribution to Dear Susan, so I thought I would share some of my images from an infrared photography workshop I recently attended that took place in Joshua Tree National Park (JTNP), which is located North East of Palm Springs, California, near the towns of Joshua Tree and Twentynine Palms.
For those of you that are not familiar with JTNP, this may be because it does not have a singular attraction that better known parks have, such as El Capitan in Yosemite National Park or the Grand Canyon in Arizona, which might make JTNP seem like an “un-destination” in the grand list of US National Parks. Though, JTNP makes up for this with plenty of small jewels that can be an easy walk to find.
While JTNP is not one of the best-known Parks in the United States, its close proximity to Palm Springs, Los Angeles, and San Diego, make it a popular location for hiking, camping, and rock climbing; particularly on weekends.
For those of you that may be wondering, all of the images here were captured using a full spectrum camera and a 720nm infrared (IR) filter. The images were processed as IR native color images, and then converted to B&W. I have included some images in both native color and B&W. Also, all of these subjects were located near, picnic areas, camp grounds, and hiking trails.
