Cottonwood and Desert Broom

Cottonwood and Desert Broom

Light can be fun to play with as in this image I made of a young Cottonwood (populus fremontii) and a desert broom (baccharis sarothroides) being selectively lit by light peeking over a canyon wall.  Again, as in the previous post,  a “gold and blue” color scheme comes of this from the dominant light source of the rock being the big blue sky above me.

Aravaipa canyon suffered a major flood in summer 2006 which stripped the canyon of many old cottonwoods.  Fortunately, the cottonwood seems to take root relatively easy and many young saplings such as this one have taken root and are growing well.
