  • Comment I'm curious about the word choice, when you say "Typical view of Joshua Tree National Park"... because to me it's exactly the opposite. The "typical" view is what I've always seen: Joshua Trees at sunset, with or without U2 bandmembers standing about. I had no idea there were any jutting rock formations there. – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 22:37, 5 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Interesting, I had no idea and sadly skipped visiting it in the past because of my misconception. – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 01:24, 8 November 2013 (UTC)

  • Support Not sure I agree with using the phrase "typical view" to describe an image even if it is typical, even though I can't think of anything better to call it. That being said it is a high quality and illustrative image. Cat-fivetc ---- 02:29, 10 November 2013 (UTC)

  • Per your suggestion I edited the caption. I copied more information from the image description page which gives it more context. Cat-fivetc ---- 21:10, 10 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Thanks for the nomination and friendly words. Why "typical"? If you take a look on the maps provided by the National Park Service you can see that geology and rock formations play an important role in the park. The Joshua Trees are not the stars there but the trees combined with the nice desert landscape with its rocks. Joshua Trees are not that seldom - you find a lot of them also far away from the park. @Keraunoscopia. The park is definitely worth a visit - I really enjoyed my time there. Unfortunately a fews hours later a strong thunderstorm was approaching and we had to leave fast due to the risk of flash floods. --Tuxyso (talk) 07:34, 10 November 2013 (UTC)
