South of Phoenix and west of Chandler, I found this Saguaro with the Sierra Estrellas in the background.
I was faced with a rather boring cloudless sky and not much color available to shoot until a band of yellow grew on the horizon. To isolate the cactus in the yellow band of color, I backed up and shot this image with a telephoto capturing the Saguaro as the sky darkened to orange.
