Located in extreme southern Arizona, Organ Pipe is a National Monument and UNESCO biosphere reserve.

I had the opportunity to visit last spring and just now getting to processing some images. The environment is harsh, the beauty outstanding. Highly recommend adding this destination to your "photo bucket list." C&C always welcomed and appreciated.

    Love the colors and textures. My fist thought was that the foreground was really busy, but it then occurred to me that it's probably an accurate depiction of the environment.


    I don't know where I'm going, but I'm going anyway.

    Luck happens when preparation meets opportunity!

    Thank you for your comment.

    You are correct, the environment is "in your face" at almost any turn. With this image, I had wanted to include the red foliage on the bare bush in the foreground, as everything else was green and various shades of brown. I suspect that the foliage would be (may be) much "fuller" as the season progressed.

    Thanks again for your comments.
