Last spring I visited Kofa National Wildlife Refuge to photograph the desert cactus and mountains. This particular location is famous for abundant teddy bear Cholla against the dramatic backdrop of Kofa Mountain. I camped there overnight for sunrise. These mountains were quite magical at the first light of the day just when the sun rose up and shined the desert floor. I tried to photograph this scene backlid since that allows the cholla' needles to glow and popped out in the image.
