Self-Portrait at Sunrise

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Katie Boye

Every morning in Joshua Tree National Park, campers and hikers scale the jumbo rocks to witness the incredible sunrises that paint the park with the most intense oranges and reds. On this particular morning I wanted to not only capture the sunrise, but make myself a part of it as well.

Location: Jumbo Rocks Campground in Joshua Tree National Park, CA.
