This site has moved to another blog called, ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY. There will me no further posts to this site. The new site will continue so show my regular shooting progress, but will also contain other topics on photography, such as hands-on equipment and software reviews, historical information on photography, and much more.

When it was set up, the DAILY STOCK SHOT PROJECT was supposed to be a one year project. Last year I extended the project another year due to the popularity of the site, but now it is time to move on.

If you wish to continue following, please visit my new blog at ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY and save it as a new link.

These sunsets were taken at the end of my second day in the Joshua Tree NP. Choosing a low angle was important to keep the full trees silhouetted against the sky instead of losing some of their detail by putting them against the dark part of the landscape.  Taken with the Nikon D800 and 70-200mm zoom lens at a 135mm focal length.

This shows the same scene but here a wide angle was used to incorporate the colorful shape of the evening clouds.
