There’s that profile again

Saguaro Cactus Backlit 1796

Behind the chain fruit cholla of the last post you saw the profile of Flat Iron Peak in the Superstition Mountains east of Phoenix. Here’s a portion of that profile again, but now less conspicuous because it appears at the base of a saguaro cactus, Carnegiea gigantea, that was blocking the morning sun on September 29th at the Lost Dutchman State Park. This is the first time I’ve ever shown one of these giants, but it won’t be the last.

If you’re interested in photography as a craft, you’ll find that newly added point 26 in About My Techniques is relevant to this photograph.

This is another entry from the saw (as in the past tense of see) part of the see-saw that’s been oscillating between pictures from my trip to the American Southwest in late September and more-recent pictures showing what’s been going on in Austin.
