Cholla Sunset with Crescent Moon


Cholla Sunset with Crescent Moon

You simply never know…January at Organ Pipe National Monument, a civil twilight, a calm dry breeze, a comfortable temperature, a reflective cloud bank situated just right, a perfect ochre sunset made possible by a distant and broad Pacific Ocean. Solace is when all this has come together, so completely, so beautifully, and then magically, there’s even more…a crescent moon appears and winks mother nature’s seductive eye – often, it pays to simply be there.
