Description

This photo shows that motivation and patience pay off. While at Saguaro National Park in southern Arizona, I sought to get the classic silhouette of cacti at sunset. The sky conditions did not look particularly promising heading toward sunset--conditions had been mostly cloudy much of the afternoon, and it was doubtful that the sunset was going to be nice at all. Numerous folks left the area--likely giving up on the scene. Then, just as the sun reached the western horizon, the sun was able to break through and turn the clouds bright orange and pink. This is the result--colorful and vibrant (and unenhanced).
