Nature's Pride

Nature's Pride

Another shot from a recent road trip out west following the trail of the superbloom through California last month. While it was a bit early for the bloom in the higher elevations of Joshua Tree National Park, we did get treated to an absolutely magnificent sunset! This sunset was particularly astounding for producing almost all the rainbow hues at once. I've seen other sunsets run through the hues as the sunset progresses, but on this day nature decided to throw it all up on the canvas in one quick but glorious burst. It was one of those situations where I had to abandon my careful search for the ideal composition and just stop and get *something*. Fortunately, it's hard to go too wrong with those magnificent Joshua trees in abundance.

I thought this might be a fitting image to put up for Pride month in celebration of the fact that sexuality is as varied and nuanced as this sunset, and nature has made it so!
