After witnessing this sunset I had to say: "Thank you God for showing me such beauty." I decided to make the hike up Golden Canyon for sunset early in the afternoon as clouds were forming over Death Valley ... thinking the clouds would be a good background for my shoot. Not only were they a good background, but a large cloud behind me to my right lit up brilliantly red. It cast a wonderful warm light on Golden Canyon, like a giant spotlight in the sky.

Wanting to make this cholla cactus the star of the picture, I watched my step not to touch or brush against it and have it unleash its wrath on me. I did manage to capture it without having it capture me.

Foliage in Death Valley National Park tends to be sparse, leaving the earth tones exposed. That can be seen in this photo as the sunrise light strikes the Panamint Range across the valley from Zabriskie Point. The pastel colors of Zabriskie are also striking in the morning light.
