50% of my profits from sales of this photograph on ImageKind will be contributed to the fight against Cancer. Wildflowers flourish in the Superstition Wilderness. When I visited during March of 2008, every square yard of this fabled "desolate wasteland" held at least one flower. Here, in the western and most accessible portion of the Superstitions, the abundant winter rains of 2008 launched this profusion of blooms. I spent an entire day photographing this event. Here is one shot, captured late afternoon. This image is unique in the fullness of color, the expansive composition (you can see a full saguaro and, in the far distance, tiny saguaro) and awesome depth of field. The foreground poppies are crisp while the "Flatiron" in the upper right is clear, dimmed only by atmospheric perspective. Note the details of shaded blooms, including blue lupine, in the shadows of the lower right. These shadows are echoed in the distant cliffs.
