Upsun Cholla & Cat Mountain
Cat Mountain appears in the distance with backlit Cholla Cacti in the foreground. You don't want to have a runin with these cacti, also call Jumping Cactus (all it takes is to catch one of the cholla droppings on your shoe and then you can flick it into the air where it can land in your calf or in your friends calf.... Ouch!). This image was taken with the kit lens on my 20D at 18mm focal length with a polarizer. The exposure was 1/640 seconds at f/8, ISO 400.
