I love the way the light slants through to illumine details in the pyramidal monolith. It's a magical spot. I took quite a few shots earlier in the afternoon that look very much like this one except for the icy bits in the foreground.

A little. And lots of icicle teardrops on the grasses in the foreground. That spot is over 4000 feet up, however, whereas we are only at 2600 here. There were a few snow flurries at our house the following morning, however.

Thanks! I had to take quite a few shots in short succession to get the patch of blue and "star" effect at the same time, a challenge exacerbated by ongoing and utterly irrational aversion to altering anything in the image as it is initially recorded.

Beyond beautiful. This is quite simply stunning, Charlie.

I'm glad you liked it! I had a talk with a woman whose daughter is a senior at Mountain View today. She felt bad for having moved her out of Catalina Foothills -- she's a single mom -- but I gave you as an example of how well one can turn out coming from the Nearer Marana.
