The King Of Ai (Hidden Valley Sunset), Joshua Tree

Via Flickr:
Backlit Joshua Tree on the "Hidden Valley" hike. It was 114°F during the day, so we kept even this quick trek for the early evening, given that JSH was with us.

It's a fantastic quick hour's wander that I would recommend highly; lots of great interest and a superbly intimate little corner of the park late on. More photos to be posted from the series.

If "Live View" has a use beyond manual focusing from a tripod, then it is this kind of backlit sun shot. Definitely worth the slight nuisance of the shutter delay to avoid getting third degree burns on your retina.

Hope everyone's having a great week.
