Photographer's Note

This photo was taken in Lost Dutchman State Park, east of Phoenix, Arizona. The red rocks in the background are known as the Superstition Mountains.

About this photo:
It had been completely overcast all day long, which made most of the poppies (those yellow flowers in the photo) close up. I waited all afternoon for a break in the clouds, but was having no luck. I could see that just above the horizon was a patch of clear skies, but it was too far south. Fortunately for me the clouds were slowly moving north, and the clear patch of sky lined up perfectly with the sun for about 5 minutes. I guess if you want something bad enough (or pray hard enough).

Film: Fuji Velvia.
Scanned with Nikon Coolscan 5000 ED.
Levels adjusted in Photoshop.
