Clouds and Mountains
One of the joys of taking art classes at the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum's Art Institute is that I get to drive through Saguaro National Park West. The Desert Museum is just south of the national park which is absolutely peppered with the giant iconic saguaro cacti.
This photo was taken just off Kinney Road near the Red Rock Visitors Center quite late in the day. Layers of clouds formed rolls for as far as the eye could see. Kitt Peak and the distant mountains tower over the Avra Valley.
The image has been artistically altered via my digital darkroom called Photoshop. I like the blue and navy and gray and taupe in this rendition of clouds and mountains.
