A hauntingly beautiful scene with the most spellbinding colours and light. I could look at this image for a long time and not tire of it - and I am drawn to the little troup of dancing white whisps of cloud? over the mountain ridge, like some ethereal spirits in joyful ascension. I Love it!!

What an amazing sky! Love the white whispy clouds dancing in the middle, and the two sentinel cacti framing the picture. I also love how this is composed to let the eye take a journey from front to back while pausing to appreciate each area, with much interest. Stunning shot!

I am in love with the Sonoran Desert and this image shows why that is.

All the elements come together: sky, cacti and the mountains to create a beautiful image.

Be there soon.

Really a wonderful, perfect composition. I like how the sky, so richly colored, is framed between the mountains and the cacti.

Wonderful sky and details in this landscape. I wonder how this would look with only the cactus on the left as the mountain range seems a bit crowded out by the cactus on the right. The overall depth created by stacking is very effective.

Wonderful pattern in the sky.
A great photograph is absorbed by the eyes and stored in the heart.
