The cloud deck in the afternoon indicated that there was going to be a good opportunity to take some evening shots of the sunset. So I packed my camera and tri-pod and headed out to the Peralta road. I drove about 2 miles past the end of the blacktop, parked the car and walked about a half mile to an area where there was an abundance of desert flora suitable to include in some shots.
I ended up with about 60 photos and after screening out the redundancy, this is what was left to present. Sunrise and sunset occur in such a short amount of time that I was tripping all over myself getting to the next location and selecting plants to include in the sunset shots.
At one point, I recalled that a professional photographer reminded me to turn around and observe what's happening behind me. So I did and there was Flat Iron all lit up and almost glowing like a red hot iron.
As the sun was dipping beyond the horizon the coyote's began to howl so I figgured it was time to beat feet and get out of there, tripping and stumbling back to the car (jeez I thought I parked closer).
