Eddie, your B&W's are becoming spectacular. This is really beautiful.
I love your composition, and what unusual trees (at least for me). The light in the sky is just perfect to show the lovely cloud formation, and I really love your sun 'star' through the tree.
I am presuming there is a hint of HDR processing which is nice... overall an awesome shot.
I agree with Kaye, Eddie. I also love the sun flare peaking through the tree

Great shot man! Timeless.
I am definitely becoming a fan of your landscapes.
Very nice! I have thought for a long time that the Joshua Tree NP would make for some stunning B&W images. This is fantastic.

Very nice Eddie. I loved these trees when I visited a number of years ago, I also loved the lighting in this part of the world. (The scenery on this holiday trip inspired me to take the course!) Am envious, would love to join you on a revisit.
