I love the Barrel Cactus. It's pink! Did my best to make a compelling composition in this area. It's not easy. For some reason the rock formations just don't photography well, but I'm really stoked with this shot. The sky certainly helped.
Alabama Hills is probably the most filmed area in the world, as it's been used for over 400 movies. Many of the restaurants and hotels in lone pine are shrines to John Wayne and other old western movie stars.
