Chumash Indian Cave of the Shamen in the San Fernando Valley, Southern California
Eye of the Mojave Desert shines it's beam of light on a mojave yucca. This rare occurance only happens a few days each year.
Composing before this light changed was the hardest part of getting this shot. I had to run from this yucca to that joshua tree to the next yucca until I was fast enough to compose a shot before the light had changed. Never really had literally chase the light before shooting at this location! It really brings new meaning to chasing the light. It was like an ant chasing a magnifying glass's beam trying to get burned!! Can't wait for the next rare light occurrence to happen here again! I'll be ready for it!!
The American Deserts still have many secrets we don't all know about!! You won't find this in the guide books!
