The desert landscape of Valle de los Cirios is a flora and fauna preserve covering 2,521,776 hectares on the Baja Peninsula of Mexico. The preserve is named for Cirios, known to many as Boojum trees, which can be seen in this photo along with the giant Cardon cactus. On this day, an approaching storm provided a dramatic sky background and soften the otherwise harsh desert light of Baja. In this particular area, the rounded granite boulders are a nice visual contrast to the spikey cardon and cirios.
