Joshua Tree Monster Rock
Digital Art - Digital Reproduction
This monster looking rock formation sits next to the parking lot at Joshua Tree National Monument. I can't make up my mind what sort of monster it is, or looks like it should be. It sort of reminds of one of those giant FX created flying bird monsters that are so popular in today's science fiction, action movies.
Or maybe it just a harmless, friendly creature that when threatened it turns transforms into one of killer robots, or bulldozer or a big truck with spiked wheels that will crush you to death.
Then again it really does look like a monster bird and reminds me for some reason of The Raven by Edgar Allen Poe.
But in reality it is just a harmless pile of rocks and boulders that has been sitting there for millions of years, minding its own business or quietly greeting the visitors. The only people it has ever hurt are the thrill seekers that try to climb it.
About 15 minutes after I took this shot, there were a dozen or more people climbing all over its back. It did make me wonder... what if it DID wake up!
