Sabino Canyon in Morning Light
Most of the desert scenery was bathed in full sunshine, but as I hiked into to the shadows of the canyon wall, I noticed this striking scene with rim lighting on the Saguaro Cacti. As I set up my tripod, I noticed the way the backlit layers of yellow and green desert shrubs framed the foreground in the lower left. “This will be my best photo of the day,” I said to myself.
This image also succeeds with its limited color palette. The interplay of yellow and shades of green unify the image, don’t you think?
