Ocotillo Abstract

At our BLM campsite in Gunsight Wash, near Organ Pipe National Monument, Arizona, it was one of those sunsets where there is just a tiny strip of colour next to the horizon.

To make the most of it, I decided to use my telephoto lens so the colours would fill the frame and then I got behind an Ocotillo cactus and used its spiny stems to make an interesting graphic design which would form a silhouette against the sky.
