This is in the San Jacinto Mountains near Palm Springs. I had spotted this location the day before and returned to spend some time here. I was almost too late as my rented SUV turned out to be not as capable as I had thought. I used an ND grad and off-camera fill flash to balance foreground / sky and bring out the cactus. It was a magical evening, when I had packed my gear a huge tarantula paid a visit. I think this image captures the atmosphere quite well.
