The flowering Ocotillo is one of the brightest flowers on the desert floor. I enjoy photographing them, however, you need calm winds.
A Cerro Castellan sunrise in Big Bend NP. High clouds blocked the sun that morning giving us this wonderful pink color on the clouds.
We usually stop at the “Ocotillo Fields” near the park entrance to photograph the sunset on our first day at the Park. The official road is Texas Highway 118 and it’s named “Panther Junction Road”.
This Ocotillo Sunset was taken in an “ocotillo field” that is located near the main entrance to the park on Highway 118 close to mile marker #21.
We normally associate fall colors with Maple, Oak, Cottonwood and Aspen trees but, we seldom associate desert plants with fall colors.
