Sonoran Sunset approaches
This view of an a partly cloudy sunset was taken west of the Tucson Mountains not far from McCain Loop road off of Kinney Road. The suns rays beam down on the landscape with a Saguaro Cactus surrounded by typical desert plants like Ocotillo and Palo Verde. This image was taken at 70mm focal length with an exposure of 1/6400 seconds at f/5.6, ISO 800. I'd use a slower ISO normally, but I think I had forgotten to set it slower after using the camera for some astrophotography in the days before.....
