More photos from J Tree

On the 27th, winds at 6 pm were rising and ultimately got to the point around 10 pm to 2 am that my tent roof was bending down and hitting me as I lay bundled in my sleeping bag.

Despite the cold and frigid winds, Pine City campground was a nice experience. In particular, I enjoyed using my new HDR app for iPhone. I'm using TrueHDR and it is good, but has a few issues with crashes. I've read that ProHDR is also worthy.

In some ways these fancy photo apps are like trying to make a silk purse out if a sow's ear because the iPhone picture capabilities aren't all that great. What I really need is a wifi connected camera with a keyboard.

Jumping Cholla

Barrel cactus

The following was really dark in the foreground and sunlight was still hitting the hills in the background. I tried several exposures but the first was best.

Normally, you couldn't take a photo of a little tunnel like this and see through to the trees on the other side.

Amazing rock formations.

Another dark foreground / light background HDR combination. Scouts are on a rock seen through the trees.
