Desert Blooms

Every season seems to bring different blooms to the desert of Big Bend, In October it's the purple sage (cenizo). I made this image at dawn in the Mule Ears area of Big Bend National Park, The sun was still not quite up to camera left. The Mule Ears area has many interesting rock formations, not just the 'ears' the area is known for. The rocks are always there, but the blooms are a passing memory. This was their time to shine.
