    Description

    The monsoon season in the Sonoran Desert can be incredibly powerful and dramatic with winds, lighting and even flooding! When I look at the strength that the plants and wildlife must have to survive this environment, it reminds me of how strong we people become from the seasons of our lives. I decided to use a stand of saguaro cactus facing an oncoming storm to illustrate the power of these storms. Using contrasting bright colors and focusing on a lightning strike which gave the saguaros a halo effect  is what I hope will lead the viewer to the meaning of this moment!
