joshua tree timelapse

Casey Kiernan spent over 12 months filming Joshua Tree. In this time-lapse short, he tried to capture the mystery of the park..

A Joshua Tree is a:

.. monocotyledonous tree native to southwestern North America in the states of California, Arizona, Utah, and Nevada.

The name Joshua tree was given by a group of Mormon settlers who crossed the Mojave Desert in the mid-19th century. The tree’s unique shape reminded them of a Biblical story in which Joshua reaches his hands up to the sky in prayer.
