Cactus on a Cloudy Winter Day

While driving out to see some snow (rare in the Phoenix metro area), I stopped to take this photo of a tall cactus while the sun was peeking through some clouds near Cave Creek, Arizona.

Kristi, this is an awesome image. I am a big sucker for seeing the light rays from the sun. Many people are afraid to shoot into the sun like this but clearly it offers awesome opportunities.

Thanks Scott! I had to get my husband to stop the car for this one… the rays were just too perfect to pass up!
