beautiful sunset colors and saturation. I like the idea of capturing the cactus in perspective with the sun and the landscape.

BTW, Happy New Year...

Great colours and silhouette. Focus and DOF is spot on

Hi David,

Fantastic shot!
I love sun and its goldish aura.
The black cuctuses are great.
Congratulations & HAPPY NEW YEAR!


wow, nice sunset, those cactus make lovely silhouettes. great one


It's a gorgeous shot, David. The framing didn't thrill me though, as it gave me a sense of false color because of the dark black area on the top which I would have expected to be blue in the desert (since I lived there :) The saguaros are dynamite.

One more beauty! ;)
Fantastic look!
