The Pinnacles are lovely when the pinkish granite rocks are basking in the noon day sun. However, I also adore the shadows that the boulders create with the early morning sun.
Here is a video showing a bird flying in the foreground, and the San Bernardino Mountains in the distance.
If you want to see the view from the top of the Pinnacles.
During the spring wild flowers bloom out by the Pinnacles, but I always have admired the stark beauty of the boulders, even during the winter months. There are not as many trees on this part of the mountain, but that is because it is at an elevation where the mountains begin to turn into the chaparral high desert.
Photographing the Pinnacles from a distance is always enjoyable. Here is a video of the Pinnacles.
