This picture was taken early in the week in the desert. We hadn’t yet found the motherload of flowers – but this was a nice start. The faux-panorama crop was to omit the shadow of the camera – and the photographer – in the lower part of the frame. Little did we know that these were some of the best clouds of the trip! Five minutes after this shot, the show was over for the night as the sun ducked behind the mountains to the west.
