  2. That’s a BIG sky! And cactus too – I don’t see those on the fens around Cambridge 🙂

    • It is quite big out here, Finn…and I’m surprised you haven’t found any cactus like that around Cambridge…you’ve found so many other wonders! 🙂

    The promise of a new day…..of each new day……blue skies with a little cloud…….and with the hope that the blue helps us through the grey….
    Lovely photo Scott.

  4. Scott, this is simply lovely. A whole different sort of serenity from your mountain images. You almost make me want to drag my sorry a** out of bed in time for the sun coming up….. but I wouldn’t have no saguaro to add to the scene.

    • Thank you, Gunta…and yes, very different than the photos from my mountains. I was hoping to see my old desert home with a different eye…intentionally looking with a different perspective. And yes, silly, get your a** out of bed a bit earlier…it’s wonderful at such an hour…saguaro or not. 🙂

  7. Gorgeous combination of a wonderful sky and an interesting silhouette of the surrounding land and plants.

    • Thank you, Meanderer…when making preparations for the trip down here, I was hoping to be able to capture some similar shots…hoping the morning light would be satisfactory, the clouds would be up there over the mountains…and that I would be able to find a suitable spot with the cactus in the foreground…. I’m happy with the results. 🙂

  10. The clouds here were very similar looking this morning… sort of spotted with little cotton balls and then drifts of softness. So lovely!

    • Thank you, Naomi…clouds can be so alluring…sometimes deceptively so.
