I went behind my school, looking for the perfect shot in this litter of wildflowers, and noticed these white feathery flowers. I like this shot because of how rich the green foliage is and how light and airy the flowers feel.

Took a break, and I saw the mountains and noticed how nice they looked with the clouds. Some were brightened by the sun and others covered by shade. I found it fascinating and thought was unique how the view was with everything combined.

I was taking a hike near my house in Mount Fagan and noticed how the sunset hit the back of the chollas. It works like a hair light as the chollas turn to shadow and the sole subject is the sun, perfectly circular in the middle of them.
