"Perveniens in Astra" (Reaching for the Stars) is what this Joshua Tree was doing in a cold night and windy in Death Valley.

This is a 4 shot blend for depth of field, one shot for the sky and 3 for the different layers of Joshua Trees. Not sure if it was light pollution from Las Vegas or the moon rising but I liked the way the orange glow at the horizon adds to the scene.

Best,
