  • Story behind the image:

    In 2013, my wife and I decided to spend the Thanksgiving Holiday traveling through the Sonoran Desert of Arizona. We camped at Organ Pipe National Monument and had the park pretty much to ourselves. We witnessed some of the most spectacular sunrises and sunsets we had ever seen. This particular image is one of my wife's favorites and is featured in one of my YouTube Videos (Watch it now!) that show how gallery and museum quality prints are produced.
