We had a request for a photograph in the desert with Cholla and Saguaro cactuses and mountains in the background looking toward the sun as it set.
Since we have spent a lot of time in the Sonoran Desert, we had several places in mind. After some exploring, we found the perfect location. Now we needed the right lighting. As the request included the sun low on the horizon, the time available to get the shot is a bit limited. As mother nature does not always cooperate, this took three trips to this location to achieve the look we wanted. On the third night, everything came together so beautifully.
It took time to find the perfect place; we found it! The entire photograph glows from the sun; this was such an incredible moment, an incredible sunset.
