Description

At the end of 2017, we visited Saguaro National Park in southern Arizona for warmth, scenery, and photography. I had some hope of capturing the "classic" southwestern scene of saguaro cacti silhouetted in front of a colorful sunset. It looked like conditions weren't going to cooperate--there were plenty of clouds, but perhaps too many. But just minutes before sunrise, some breaks formed in the cloud cover--especially on the western horizon--allowing the sun to illuminate the clouds and turn them bright orange and pink. I positioned myself near a nice row of saguaro cacti and began shooting. This is likely my favorite photo of the many I took that evening.
