Sunsets, Sunflowers and Cactus

After bailing on the storms, I saw a giant monolith of a mountain jutting from the land way east of Florence. I knew I couldn’t get there, so I tried to get as close as I could…so I took off down a dirt road named East Price. Well, I never got to the mountains as the sun just set too quickly, but it didn’t stop me from pulling the car over on a few occasions and lining up a couple of shots.

A typical Arizona summer sunset right here, with debris clouds from the monsoons creating some spectacular lighting. The special part of this shot I think was the sunflowers in the foreground with the cactus and sky. Interesting all the wild sunflowers growing all over the deserts.

The dark line across the shot are some train tracks that appeared to be too old to carry a train until one came by just before this shot was taken.

And on another note, this earned me an Approver’s Choice over on Wunderground, so very awesome!
