More Saguaro Blossoms

Sunday May 24th 2020

It was another nice day in the desert. Today’s weather was a repeat of Saturdays. There were a few clouds, some wind and a high temperature in the mid nineties.

I got out in the midday sun to look at a few more saguaro cactus blossoms. To maximize the viewing opportunity you need to be out in the desert when the sun is high in the sky. Early in the morning there are only a few blossoms open. Later in the day all of the blossoms have closed up for the night. Even with sunscreen on, I don’t want to be in the midday sun that long.

I took a lot more pictures today, but skipped the sunset. A couple of yesterday’s were so nice I didn’t want to take second place shots. Instead I took a few pictures with the setting sun at my back. The so called “golden hour” light makes some interesting pictures.
