Photographer's Note

This is an ocotillo plant along the road near Coyote Creek, in the Ocotillo Patch area of Anza Borrego Desert State Park.
There was no post-processing, the sky was very blue. Here I like the light colors of the ground giving way to the green leaves against the sky. The subject provides scale; I think this photo also captures a sense of the quiet sandy desert where it was taken.
Ocotillos are native to the Sonoran and Chihuahuan Desert regions of southwestern United States and northern Mexico. The branches are covered with long needles. This specimen has fleshy green leaves, which are produced when water is present. Other times of the year they can be bare, or have red flowers at the tips of the branches.
