Sunrise At Organ Pipe National Monument

The challenging clear skies made the early morning and late evening the prime times for our photography. I found the desert a difficult place to photograph for the limited time we were there. I think thunderstorms, snowy weather or springtime with the flowers blooming would be a great time to visit. Even with the conditions we had, it is an amazing and beautiful place.

Great landscape scene with a challenging light that you handled nicely.
Nice perspective with the Cactus lined up and nice illumination in the foreground.
Nicely placed in the frame image size eye popping.

with an inspired POV you made this scene sing...yes, bald blue skies are a challenge, which you adeptly sidestepped though...maybe a visit during monsoon season might be a good time..
