We returned to the Motherload last night to give it one last shot at making a memorable picture. It was a hot, dry day in Borrego Springs – and these conditions really took a toll on the wildflowers. The amount of wilting made it clear that we really only had one more crack at getting the perfect shot.
We squeezed in this shot in the few minutes that the sun was good – and before contrails entered the frame to ruin any future pictures.
