I'm a photographer in Tucson, Arizona and the Sonoran Desert is a beautiful and diverse place to live. More than 100 reptiles, 2,000 native plants, 60 mammals, and 350 birds call this desert home, not only surviving here, but thriving — as long as their habitats remain intact.

0040 – Sunset in the Backyard

A lot of people took pictures of the sunset last night. I had to try! What I really like about this photo is the sky color above the clouds.
