Beautiful colors! A bit unusual too, as most of the time people don't include any blue sky with their silhouettes of saguaros. I like it.

This happened by accident-I was shooting the changing colors of the Superstitions when I turned around and saw this. Kept going back and forth until the sun set.

Beautiful images. The blue sky behind the saguaros really makes them pop.

Nice work on both!

So glad you were watching in both directions - each perspective is a gem!

Lovely. Both are nice, but the sunset of the saguaro is just stunning.

Love the second one, too. The color is wonderful, and I like the line between the dark and the sunlight on the saguaro, the contrast of day and night.

Thanks for all the kind comments-trying to retire and move to AZ next year. The Superstitions are only 20 min from my Arizona house-will spend more time there in the future.
