Photo of the Day: Full Bloom Hero

Claret Cup Cactus (Echinocereus triglochidiatus) are common throughout the Southwest. I found my "hero" in full bloom while exploring the Burr Trail in Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. I thought there was the potential to make a nice photograph so I waited for the early morning rays to creep across the desert floor until they created a nice rim light on the mound. The flowers didn't light up quite the way I imagined, but I think it still turned out to be a nice image.

April is a great month in the Utah desert. I'm currently working on a 2018 workshop that will explore the less traveled Utah Backcountry. 

Official announcements will be made soon.
