This picture is of a very rare event. The mountain is known as the Three Sisters and in the Sonoran Desert they get snow about once every hundred years. The picture was taken in the early morning and you can see the glow on the needles of the Saharjo Cactus.

Love the Saguaro Cacti here. The snowcapped peaks make a magnificent backdrop. Good sharpness & well framed & composed. Excellent strong light contrasts & a nice blue sky. Tfs!

Ciao Giovanni ,
A splendid nature composition . Like the contrast between the "lush green" desert in the FG , and the superb snowy peaks in the BG .

I hear Montana is great, I missed there as our visa was running out so it was a shame, america is too big. I have been to the Apache junction, although I cannot believe the snow here as we visited in early spring and was very dry. I love the cactus in the image which gives the image life and colour. A rare sight for sure especially in the desert.

Una immagine preziosa ...anche fra 50 anni e una composizione ben impaginata.
Di nuovo le tre sorelle ...alla prossima ...

This is beautiful image and you will have to wait another 100 years to get the shot. The foreground has good contrast against the snow covered mountain. Useful note and a good composition.
Thanks and have a great weekend,

This is a very nice capture of this rare phenomenon. The distance gives deepness toward the 3 sisters, well franed by the two cacti. The strong contrast between green and white is interesting and the cloudy sky adds to the mood. The colors are well rendered and the shapness is excellent.

The distance between the cactus and the mountains is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the cactus and of the mountains. The morning light is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.
