Saguaro Sunset

Saguaro National Park, Arizona

After a dozen years of living year-round at 9,000 feet elevation in the Colorado Rocky Mountains, my wife and I finally got an opportunity to snow bird in Tucson for several weeks in December and January. This was our first opportunity to spend a significant amount of time in Saguaro National Park and at the Arizona-Sonoran Desert Museum, a wonderful desert zoo/aviary/botanical garden and more. I spent the golden hours in the AM and PM looking for desert compositions that included the iconic Saguaro cacti and as many other cacti specimens as I could locate--jumping cholla, prickly pear, giant agave, yucca--plus palo verde and so many other desert plants. One evening as we were heading back to our base camp, the setting sun illuminated the underside of the clouds just as we were nearing the Saguaro National Park Desert Discovery Nature Trail. I quickly pulled in to a parking spot, jumped out and pulled out my spot meter, vest, camera bag, and tripod and set off to find something to put underneath the amazing sunset sky. I walked quickly into the little park, knowing whatever I found would be silhouted against the painted sky. I found a relatively uncluttered scene with several giant saguaro (Carnegiea gigantea) in the foreground, midground, and background. Perfect. I set up as quickly as I could and was able to make two exposures before the light faded out. They say luck is when preparation meets opportunity. I felt very lucky indeed to witness and to be able to photograph this amazing Sonoran Desert sunset experience. Photo © copyright by Michael Lynn Roberts.
