Beautiful shot Ian! The colors and the position of the sun is perfect! I was in Big Bend National Park, Texas a while ago and I was trying to get a similar shot of the desert plants but of course it didn't work out quite as well as yours. Great work as always!
I really wish it bloomed like this up near phoenix this year. Barely any rain so far this year. I would love to make a trip that way, you captured this scene so perfectly from the colorful vegetation to the jagged cliffs to the brilliant sunstar. All composed so perfectly that I can not find one thing wrong with the photo. Simply one of your best.
