[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken just before sunrise at the foot of the trail that ascends to Pinnacle Peak. The desert landscape around this area is unbelievable - deep red rocks and tall Saguaro cacti. The peak rises out of the Sonoran desert. Will post more images from this trip soon.

I increased ISO just slightly for this image, but probably should have done more. Also wish I'd had a tripod, but could only carry so much on this trip. In PP: barely anything, really.

Hi Sandy

A superb sunset with good colour, saturation & sharpness. Nice aerial perspective & tonal range with wonderful silhouettes. Tfs!

Dear Sandy,

Such a peaceful scene you have caught in here!
The silhouettes of the hills against such a dreamy sky is so beautifully captured.
The harmony of colors is amazing and contrasts are superb.
The exposure is well handled.
Good work!

Thanks and regards,

Hi Sandy,
Beautiful clouds formation acquiring such a reddish cast of sunset.
A nice silhouetted FG of this peak while a glaring red horizon is enhancing this superb neat presentation.
Well done,

Francis Xavier
