Sunset in Saguaro National Park

This image was created in the west side of Saguaro National Park this summer in the Sonorran desert. I searched for some place where the sunset light would create interesting color. Unfortunately, there were almost no flowers except for the Saguaros themselves which still had some next to their fruit (which is yummy but don't try to pick it yourself). The below image is a composite of 9 images, so it is extraordinary high resolution and will print very well at the largest sizes available. The cacti in front are Teddybear Chollas, and the iconic ones in the back are Saguaro. Read more about the saguaro and the cholla on wikipedia. It takes Saguaros something like 70 years to develop their first sidearm!

There is a more square crop of this image available too.
