Sharing Some Love, Light And Beauty

Finally Friday and I'm all but caught up on my images for the last week, phew. I thought I'd share a few more from my trip to Joshua Tree NP if that's okay. I went looking for gallery shots and am really happy with all the images I got that day.
This is one of a few entrances into the Cholla Garden. I loved this view and if you view in full screen I promise you'll feel like you are on the trail with me.
In bloom these cacti are so beautiful but be careful not to get to close. Their needles are very fine and ball like pieces fall off which are then carried by the wind. If you get stuck I've been told they actually go all the way into your skin so it's incredibly difficult to get them out. Ouch.
While waiting for night to fall so I could shoot the Arch (you can see it here) my photog buddy and I enjoyed an incredible sunset where I tried to capture some love, light and God's beauty to share with you all.

Linking up with T over

Sky Watch Friday.

Happy Weekending Peeps!
