18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Pitchfork Joshua Tree

Joshua tree desert is famous for its incredible tree surrounded by moon type sandy landscape. I wanted to capture this wild and dry environment. While hiking, I saw this Joshua tree pointing at the sky as a pitchfork, trying to somehow talk with the gods. I had to capture this scenic interaction between the tree and the sky.
