Guadalupe Blooms

TGIF! I made this shot when we went looking for a different spot to watch the sun set on the Guadalupe Mountains. Not much blooming at this location beneath El Capitan, but this bush was loaded with blooms. It provided just the contrast I was looking for in the scene. Just when you think the desert is all scrub and brush, you run into a plant like this thriving in the harsh environment.
