Spring 2015 Bloom
Trek Date: 2015 March 20
If the Joshua Tree bloom cycle of 2013 is considered a once in 25-year explosion, then 2014 paled to virtual nothingness. Came the spring of 2015, the Joshuas again put on a splendid show, and I was fortunate to travel through the region known as Keys Corner into the Middle Kingdom of Wonderland of Rocks, North. Pictured on this page are only some of the blossoms I encountered. Hundreds of Joshuas had flower stalks on them, many with double, triple and occasional quadruple stalks on them.
My technique is to play them off against the middle-to-far background rock piles and formations. 3D Photography gives ample room to play with depth. I hope that you enjoy them. 3D Anaglyphs first (use your red-cyan glasses to view), followed by 3D Half Side-by-Sides for those wishing to see the *real thing* on a 3D enabled television screen. The camera setting is 16×9 or widescreen mode for this very reason. Lastly, I’ve included a nice selection of 2D images.
As usual, I took a snaking path (one might describe it as a drunken-man’s) through the area.

End of Joshua Tree blooms. Thank you.
