Enchanted Rock State Natural Area Spring Sunset 428-1

Enchanted Rock State Natural Area

On a beautiful sunset in the Enchanted Rock State Natural Area, prickly pear were blooming atop a rocky outcrop as the sun faded into the distant clouds. The orange colors of the bloom added a splash of radiance to the rugged granite outcrop. And navigating this prickly pear field left me with thorns aplenty on my backside. But I came away with this photograph, as well as a few others from this vantage point, so maybe it was worth it! Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
