A few minutes of the magic light at Mount Ajo, Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument
This is two landscape frames stitched. No HDR here, minimal color correction in Lightroom.
I think this is the best photo of the trip. The sun is directly behind me, peeking through a small crack in the clouds - this cast a nice shadow on the clouds above Mount Ajo and some nice warm diffuse light on the saguaros and organ pipes below Mount Ajo. My friend Charlie and I hung out at this spot for over an hour waiting for this magic moment.
