Morning Glow

Anyone who knows my work or where I’ve worked knows I enjoy the uncommon embrace of light, where sun can be too common.

What the desert doesn’t sustain in flowers for long, it compensates with in light.


The first light on the top of the next ridge is only matched by the tops of the ocotillos and barely on the barrel cactus. The scent, the breeze.


In bright light these Echinocactus horizonthalonius would have open flowers, but the bright light would fade them. Here at sunrise, this trio is are subtle, but with magenta promise.
